Future of the Left – The Plot Against Common Sense

Future of the Left – The Plot Against Common Sense

“Sheena Is A T-Shirt Salesman” – 10/10.  Genius.

“Failed Olympic Bid” – 9/10.  Good but not great.

“Beneath The Waves An Ocean” – 0/10.  This is could be a song by some shit mid-1990s ambient band or pretentious post-rock outfit.

“Cosmo’s Ladder” – 8/10.  Maybe deserves more but I don’t get it.

“City Of Exploded Children” – 8/10.  Maybe deserves more but I don’t get it.

“Goals In Slow Motion” – 3/10.  Makes me think about Match of the Day, which makes me think of Lineker, Hanson and Lawrenson, which makes me sad.

“Camp Cappuccino” – 8/10 again.  Good, but not the highest standards that Falkous can manage.

“Polymers Are Forever” – 9/10.  Nice.

“Robocop 4 – Fuck Off Robocop” – 11/10.  As good as it gets in the history of popular music, or is this just a sign that I like swearing?

“Sorry Dad, I Was Late For The Riots” – 8/10.  Again, a very catchy title!

“I Am The Least Of Your Problems” – 7/10.  Decent enough but it ain’t no “Alan is a Cowboy Killer”.

“A Guide To Men” – 7/10.  Again, reasonable but nothing special.

“Anchor” – 1/10.  Boring.

“Rubber Animals” –  6.5/10.  Better than many bands manage, but its nothing special.

“Notes On Achieving Orbit” – 7/10.  A reasonable but slightly disappointing end to the album in terms of song titles.
