Staff review by

I've been spinning the new Freak Kitchen album for a while now. I've liked it since the moment I got over the initial prejudiced impression, which was at about a second spin. Yet, strangely, even after repeated listens, I'm still at a loss as to how to describe this album. With all the thinking and back catalogue revisits, I've managed to come up with two terms to stick on it: vintage and old. It'll take some explaining how these two terms relate to the album and, more importantly, why specifically these two.

Fucking batman, this is annoying.

Yeah, I imagine his batarang would keep prodding you in the hips.

Rating: 8 Another solid album, I've always loved IA's tone and riffs. His lyrics/vocals might put some people off, but I think they add a bit of fun.

Rating: 8 Simply intelligent fun. That's all it is. And I love it exactly that way.
