Yes, okay, this album is a bit bloody weird. But that's not all bad. It gives the album a flavour and a texture that has really been built upon since their debut in 2006.
Their early work was very experimental. Nothing could be taken from the albums. They sounded more like a mash of sounds, that was almost music. 'Bag Of Meat' has refined their sound to a more mature level, yet I can't help but think that they have quite a long way to go if they are ever to make a record which is worth credit.
It may be usual for a band to mature on their second album, but 'The Victorian English Gentlemens Club' have changed this to later on in their musical careers, thus showing that they are already different from other bands who are relatively new to the scene like them. So a very good album in the future is not out of the question! But 'Bag Of Meat' is average at best.
Plus, they need to put an apostrophe in their name. It's annoying.
Best Tracks: ' Lost My Face In A Fast Car Race', 'As Jungle Drums Rang Across The Amazon (We Held Our Heads And Screamed)', ' John Denver’s Wife'.
