Infectious and energetic... 8/10
‘Bloodline’ will bewitch you
drive, intensity, and lyrical acumen... 8.5/10
nightmarish-hypnotic gloom... driving rhythm section... and a guitar that is simultaneously cutting and shimmering
The band have the same drive, intensity and lyrical acumen as they did in their youth. Not many bands can say that after a 30 year break and it is that spirit, allied with quality songwriting and musicianship it must be said, that sets this album apart from similar bands trying to recreate their glory days...
...as if John Lydon’s paunchy and directness with Ian McCulloch’s haunting and unhinged voices have had a singing and snarling baby.
...nebulous soundscape... progressive, experimental music... melancholic and mystical lyrics
...aural epidemic from which there is no escape.
sometimes sombre, sometimes dancing... always intense
