Boomkat Product Review:
After accumulating no small amount of hype and credibility by selling out a pair of singles on Lex ('The Beat That My Heart Skipped' and the once ubiquitous 'Thou Shalt Always Kill') Dan Le Sac and Scroobius Pip found themselves snapped up by Rob Da Bank's Sunday Best label. The Mike Skinner comparison is pretty much obligatory, and it's by no means unjustified. Scroobius Pip seems to be more of a headline act than Monsieur Le Sac himself, despite the order of billing. His worthy polemics and no-sh*t-Sherlock logic command the focus of your attention, but Le Sac's unsettling electronic backdrop for the self-harm/suicide monologue 'Magician's Assistant' works very well in conjunction with the lyric, although speaking of which, that writing's a tad heavy handed: Pip gets all preachy and socially responsible about the ramifications of taking your own life. Hey, nice sentiments Pip, but there's really not much poetry to any of this (although a line about the grass being "greener on the other side of the ground" is laudably evocative), something not helped by the odd mixture of Essex wideboy and self-righteous social worker in his intonation and delivery. Returning to that big single of theirs (poised as the penultimate track on the album), the central "Thou shalt always kill" is both ambiguous and a bit clumsy in the context of the song, and while the lines about Danny Glover and Stephen Fry are still moderately funny, I shall defend Hollyoaks to the hilt.
