"Barons & bankers" is a blow on those responsible for the world crisis, seen through the punk attitude and the anger of someone who grew up in garages. Even when this fourtet plays a ballad ("Truth and Consequence") there is an underlying angst, common in those who got the blues. Yet another strong feature of this record is post punk, delivered both in a visceral, heartfelt way as in the challanging and pounding "Raising to the Round" and in a more intellectual Talking-Heads-like way in the groovy "70og box". While the rock'n'roll suggestions in "Running to the Moon" may heavily hint to The Clash, possibly mixed with a 50s style, in "Vanished from the scene" the band is let loose on a wild beat ride, with some very good blues in it.
