Album: The Cribs, In the Belly of the Brazen Bull (Wichita)

Hopes for the fifth Cribs album were cautiously high, following the ragged nihilism of lead single "Come on, Be a No One".

However, one listen to In the Belly... shows that to be merely a flash in the chip-pan. The Mazola-haired Jarman twins, with Johnny Marr no longer on board, are still churning out mid-afternoon festival fodder – everything's turned up to 11 but content is absolute zero. If the Cribs were any more landfill, they'd have seagulls following them around.
