Have to say I'm disappointed.
It's a bit 'by the numbers', a bit repetitive and a bit too long.
Hope there's better tracks on the album.

It's a very powerful track but I know what you mean , it could be shorter. I'm sure there will be some gems on the new album though. Jaz's vocals sound great on the verses though IMO.

7 years til the next release.
Maybe Jaz was doing his classical stuff then?
I think he was doing more of his classical stuff. I sort of lost touch with what they were doing around that time as their website was absolutely useless. (It's not much better now) In fact I assumed that they had split up until I heard 'Loose Cannon' on daytime Radio 1 of all places. :shock:

Must admit, I really like it.(Prefer it to Autonomous Zone) Agree could be around a minute and a half shorter though. Thanks for the 'heads-up' Jason. 8)

I just heard that my friends 'The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing' have been confirmed as support on October 28th in Nottingham.

I might have to go now.
Despite the 3 hour drive.

Jah Wobble supporting in London. Don't like the 9/11 comment in the lyrics but love the song. Can't wait to see them and hear the album.

I was impressed with what i saw at the Metal Hammer awards, so i think i will go to the Roundhouse gig in November. As for their albums my favorites are "Reqium" and "Absloute Decent".
