Postwave psych pop influenced exports. It’s definitely an experience of two halves, as the tense, leftfield post-punk (see also the wonderfully wonky ‘Soft and Lazy’) rubs shoulders with a more blunted, horizontal vision of tracks like ‘San Sebastian Prophet’. Nearly everything here, from either side of the divide, is short and sharp, so there’s very little chance of boredom setting in, and the liberal use of spoken word samples as well as some ingenious lyrical work, means that Smith’s message about modern life and its pitfalls comes across effectively without clumsy sloganeering.
