The mystifyingly easy ride this trio of stale farts has received from critics over the last quarter of a century genuinely makes my piss boil. Further proof (if it was needed) that the demise of traditional music journalism and especially it's inkie strain shouldn't be lamented too much. Fucking rubbish.

Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
