'Bad Comedian' taken from the bands fourth effort, Brilliant! Tragic! (Cooking Vinyl) once again sees Pixies frontman Frank Black on production duties and it shows. Eddie Argos' voice appears finally tamed in parts of the album with classic lines such as 'I bet he signs his name in comic sans' and with a guitar sound that could be found on any of Black's own records. Art Brut may always be a love or hate band but I personally will always have a place for them in my heart. All those years ago did you ever imagine they would progress to a fourth album? No, nor did I.

Eddie Argos - I salute you.
