There’s a trademark Gentlemens sound but plenty of variety. Daniele Fioretti’s adept drum patterns colour the songs dramatically. It’s why the surging “Out Of Here” with its undercurrent of bass synth rubs up against the fluid blues of “A Second Coming” with nothing sounding out of place.

The blues is all about death and sex. “She Made Me Hard” addressee the latter.

“I Let Ypu Die” and “Stil I Am” are side one’s strong rockers. “John Q Public Blues” shows off The Gentlemens’ dynamics: A sparse beginning swells on the back of a steady bass rhythm and probing guitar licks. “Lower Ground Floor” takes it down to the basement and nails the door shut.

It was recorded at Outside Inside in Italy where the New Christs, among others, have worked, and the ubiquitous Matt Bordin (OJM, Mojomstics) had a hand in the production so you know it sounds good.
