The Cribs - Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever
The Cribs are a band that I have a love-hate relationship with. While they lack technical ability they tend to make up for it with their sheer song writing ability. Sometimes this isn't enough though and their songs have the tendency to descend into a dirge of noise. Their new album Men's Needs Women's Needs, Whatever doesn't dispel this tendency and doesn't quite have the same quality of songs as The New Fellas. Saying that it has some absolute gems, one of these being Shoot The Poets which is a gentle acoustic track that is a real contrast with the rest of the album. You can download the track below.
