"His gnarliest record in over 30 years....Hugh and Steve: a marriage madeinblack."
“Thanks to a gloriously raw and vibrant sound, courtesy of the ever reliable Steve Albini, Cornwell’s endearingly sardonic observations on freedom, consumerism and Madonna Louise Ciccone crackle with energy. He sounds more engaged and intense than he has in years.
It ends with the menacing sprawl of In The Dead Of Night Cornwell’s finest and most unashamedly epic moment since the Punk Era”
