REVIEWS

Punk poet has never been much of a job description. But on the four albums I’ve heard, Lennon always makes something of it, and on this 2006 entry he makes everything of it. Recorded when the Celtic Tiger had gotten so mangy anybody who could stand Lennon at all knew he’d seen what was coming, he’s full of gleeful scorn whether advising fellow male-pattern baldness sufferers to live with their fate or going off about home invasions again. For 20 tracks he rants on, sometimes tunefully and always unstoppably. He gets everything you’d hope from titles like “New Land of Syringes” and “Nigerians (Stop Giving Out About).” The matched hymns “You Must Forgive the Cnts” and “You Are No Scumbag” showcase his spiritual side, and “S.U.F.Y. Hospitals” borrows a hook from “Looking for the Perfect Beat.” All he wants is to keep us out of the circle of shit and help make a better world for Ireland’s bruised bananas.

ROBERT CHRISTGAU

Every time you think you have Lennon parcelled up as a category he shreds your misconceptions, turns out the contents of your pocket (and maybe stomach too) and slaps you on the back with the tattooed hand of human warmth. WHISPERIN AND HOLLERIN MAGAZINE
