Returning with their first new album in seventeen years, Baby Chaos unleash Skulls, Skulls, Skulls, Show Me The Glory upon the world. And what a comeback album it is!
Pretty much picking up where they left off in the late nineties, Baby Chaos return with their perfect blend of melody, punk, rocking riffs and alternative attitude. By God we've missed these guys!
Opener ‘You Can’t Shut Us Up’ doesn’t sound like they’ve aged at all, packing in more energy and ideas than many groups half their age, and the momentum generated by this lasts well into the second half. ‘We Were Youth’ sounds mean and frenetic in the same way that recent groups like Pulled Apart By Horses and Future Of The Left do. ‘Poison Ivy Girls’ and ‘P P P Peaches’ show those melodic blasts reminiscent of American college rock.  ‘The Whispering Of Giants’ see's vocalist Chris Gordon really unleash his voice to awesome effect,  and the intricate closer ‘Habibi’ builds slowly from modest beginnings into a glorious noise. And then swerves left into a slick, smart outro.. 'Have Faith In Yourself' is another brilliant standout track, with its creepy kids choir.
'Skulls, Skulls, Skulls, Show Me the Glory' is a great comeback album from a band that should have been huge years ago!

Very Highly recommended!

Rating - 10/10
