5 stars This is an awesome album, but when you take into account that it is the Mancunian band's debut effort, it's even more impressive. From the soothing opening track to the full out rock of the epic "Massive Bereavement", this album never fails to impress.

The two shorter tracks are sample based, and perhaps slightly disappointing compared with the genius that they sit alongside, but don't go as far as to detract from the overall piece.

If you are a fan of epic rock, which twists and turns so as to sound like several songs rolled seamlessly into one you will not be disappointed here. In fact, you may even fall in love. Especially if you're a woman who loves men who love drugs...

Warren | 5/5 |
