A delightful mix of of hopping tunes and comedic genius. (PBS FM)

An unusual release this one, with a feel not unlike The Pogues throughout, sporting 8 tracks along the length of the ep with a sort of 'folkish' style for want of a better term to the sounds here. There are a few gems as well, with a sense of humour also showing it's head.

The opening song "Improvise" is one of the early picks here, with an unusual pacing & an equally different vocal style, a couple of others such as "Sweet Charity" & "Smoke" certainly showcasing a fairly diverse range. The band's sense of humour here really shows up in the brilliant 10 second closing track simply titled "This Song", which I reckon is excellent. (Heard Mag)

I had no idea what to expect from this CD - I had just rocked up at the office one morning (slightly hung-over) and put it in the CD player. The most hilarious hour of my life followed, but be warned - my sense of humour is unique. However, if like me, you are slightly bent in your perceptions of what others wrongfully label reality, you are sure to enjoy this CD.

Being politically incorrect is something everyone is having a take at these days: Man Bites God are in a league of their own. I just wish my vivid imagination didn't readily lend images to some of their lyrics.

Otherwise, loved it." (Steven Brown, Rabelais)
