The most rewarding factor on this album is the involvement of Edwyn Collins as producer (and label boss).
While not restricting the band's natural eclecticism, Collins has brought a focus to each track that affords it maximum impact, whether it's the skeletal but muscular funk-pop of "Old Fashioned Girl", or the staccato groove of "Good Music". Elsewhere, "The War Con" is a Calexico-meets-Link Wray instrumental, "Do The Pump" revives the classic "Radar Love" motorik groove, and "Delaware" affects the sinister croon of The Doors. Deft and diverse, they're the Welsh Ween.
