Therapy? - Crooked Timber

Irish punk rockers Therapy? make a triumphant return with a new studio album.

This is one hard and angry sounding album. The melodies are still there but subtly lurking behind a wall of hard riffs and rhythms. This CD isn't going to get much radio play (with the exception of Exiles perhaps) but it's good.

In a way it is all quite minimal with things running at a sedate pace in places but the power and energy is still there. It is very nice to hear a band that continues to challenge themselves and evolve rather than sticking with a set formula.

Standout tracks:
The Head That Tried To Strangle Itself
Crooked Timber

Bizarrely, if anyone wondered what had happened to "that" snare sound on St. Anger, Therapy? seem to have found it on a couple of tracks but it doesn't seem so bad on this album!
