FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND

The dependable Welsh lilies return, but are undone by a chromed production code and hollowed-out sentiment that leaves little to hold on to. Arduous formulism reigns as the tracks idle in glazed emoting, moping between big, close-harmony chorus’ that are calibrated to the grain for Geek-beats-Jock prom night glory. Its make you wonder how much a good dose of backstage itch-cock and a serious crack addiction would benefit their sound. Beyond their MTV-baiting obligations, however, a handful of effective post-hardcore work-outs restore dignity. Savour it fringe-lings because bassist Davies has bailed, so they may not see your 16th birthday.
