Chris always has a playful and evocative way with words and we always hope he'll review our stuff. Although there is still a lot about Politic that is slightly surreal and twisted, at its heart it's a very serious record: the world is getting less tolerant and less kind, and we still remember when every year the tide of reactionary bullshit swept away from you rather than rushing a wash of turd onto your ankles.
It is cool to be compared to Alice in Chains. The review nails one thing absolutely. We don't take ourselves very seriously, but the music, well that is front and centre the important stuff.
