Louder Than War
Jason Williamson is the poet laureate of our nation’s underclass as Sleaford Mods set a swearing world record on this lively compilation of their greatest hits.
Loud and Quiet
The whole compilation serves as an undeniably class act by a band whose class identity is more honest than most.
Sharp, autonomous articulation combined with Andrew Fearn’s edgy, unpolished beats remain key drivers in Sleaford Mods land. Raw, real and humorous, ‘All That Glue’ is an important event delivering a conclusive overview of the duo’s achievements and successes at a time when there’s a real thirst for it.

A fine showcase for how Sleaford Mods boil down punk and hip-hop's frustration into eloquent outrage and anger, All That Glue helps the converted and newcomers alike play catch-up.

Sleaford Mods capture the nuances of contemporary urban British working class life and all its iniquities with rare accuracy. Their seething, resolutely unfiltered snapshots of a society in decay are something of an acquired taste, for sure, but there’s no-one else out there quite like them.

All That Glue’s unearthed tracks easily punch as hard as their better-known counterparts, and each showcases Williamson’s bottomless reservoir of ways to vent spleen.

While "All That Glue" may lack musical complexity, the sheer amount of performance energy and irreverent lyrics found on this compilation album more than make up for it.
Целый час ранее неизданного и изданного материала от важного панк-дуэта, умеющего и в рэп — звучит все это традиционно, как ругань свихнувшегося пьяницы под звон ржавых кастрюль и разбитой гитары.

Во время прослушивания крайне сложно отделаться от впечатления, что ... read more
