Promoting their latest single in February , Itch made the following statement: "There's no fucking future for anyone but the privileged any more, education needs to be for everyone, we need jobs, houses, and all they want us to do is pay our taxes, shut the fuck up and gratefully eat X-Factor. It makes me sick to my gut. Banker bonuses and politicians claiming thousands for their fucking duck ponds while they sweep the homeless off the streets and hose down where they're sleeping, taking away benefits while two and a half million people are unemployed, leaving empty houses to rot and trying to outlaw squatting during a homeless crisis.
There's a battle going on and we're part of it whether we like it or not. He has no idea what life is like for the people he condemns, for the people he makes it most difficult for. He's a fucking scumbag and I've had enough of it, I know I ain't the only one either. I look around and I see resistance on every level.

I was gonna give it a 3 right up until about 10 seconds before I pressed submit when I thought "well, I do quite like about half of the whole album" which is generally a 3. I kinda wanted to give it a 3 just for all the shit songs and cos of my soundoff but that would be harsh.
Fair enough I'm just mad that they went out with such a sloppy effort. Album Rating: 3. Album Rating: 2. Album blows. Even Itch's lyrics don't save this from mediocrity.
Christ, if half of what's in that blog post's true, he's a massive cunt.
