From the get go, it’s more than obvious that the first track, Mushroom Cloud bears an uncanny resemblance to the works of Beck. However once that burst of Beckness fades, a more Radiohead sound emerges, so instead of an album that batters the senses, I found an album that had a whole lot of depth.

For an album that was recorded in the artists (Jody Delli Santi) parents basement, this is a very polished offering. However it’s not until the second half of the album that the album really begins to come into it’s own. Both Evolution and Polite have that infectious sound that might have been better, opening the album. However it’s Fire Escapes, that for me is the real standout track, with it’s chirpy acoustic guitar and quirky strained voice. This could easily be a chart song. The album rounds off with In the Dust, and before you know it, the album has finished and you feel that you want to play it all over again.

I’m amazed that I haven’t heard any buzz around SuperCreep. I first heard them on the A Brit Abroad podcast and since then nothing. This is a shame as this is a great album and deserves a wider audience. I’m hoping 2006 will hopefully rectify this.

Conclusion : For me this was an album that I found it hard to get into, as it’s mostly a different sound to Fire Escapes, which introduced me to the band. However after listening to the album a few times, it really has grown on me.
