Mike Hadreas' 3rd album is another startlingly strong record, featuring elegiac, delicate melodies along with some more striking pop songs & dancier elements.

opener 'I Decline' recalls the piano-based numbers from his debut while single 'Queen' is a powerful anti-homophobic statement with a thudding fuzzed guitar part matched by a lighter keyboard part. 'fool' starts off with a poppy rhythm but effectively breaks with an ethereal quiet part that's emotionally staggering. 'longpig''s synth line could be from an '80s pop song but the final few songs hark back to his quieter mode. fans of Antony & The Johnsons, Xiu Xiu or Sufjan Stevens might like to try this one out. "glittering, defiant & avowedly queer" - 4/5 Guardian
