Itâ€™s hard to know when to accuse a band of ripping off some other band. Did The Rapture steal the bass line from â€œOut Of The Races And On To The Tracksâ€? Yeah, not to my knowledgeâ€¦ Oh wait, thatâ€™s just the first three songs. They stop trying to be whatever genre after that. More to the point (ooh track five is all sorta noisy and weird and there arenâ€™t lyrics) this album doesnâ€™t jive with Numbers or AIDS Wolf or whatever else weâ€™ve mentioned recently. But! If youâ€™ve been reading Only and wondering when something a lot more listenable (and by listenable I mean could nestle in to a bridging the gap mix tape right betwen â€œDetatchable Penisâ€ and â€œMaking Plans For Nigelâ€), and Les Savy Fav is a bit too much for you to handle, then go lean back at this show and donâ€™t go to Deerhoof (track nine is like track five. Skip it if you didnâ€™t like track five).
