There’s a lot going on throughout, from the Korn-esque Here We Go, to the antagonistic Mass Hysteria (which also name-checks a certain excellent publication), to the metronomic tension of Say A Word, but as a record it doesn’t feel like the perfect example of Bookie as an artist. While the music is aggressive and in-your-face, none of it lingers longer than the rather brisk runtime. There are some great ideas, and there’s genuine, seething anger underpinning the whole thing, but Kid Bookie is yet to truly find his voice and make the record he will be known for.
