The Peace and Truce of Future of the Left is a beautifully demanding album, an album that is undoubtedly a product of its times.

Conceived in an age of general disillusionment it does more than complain, it acts as a vehicle to guard against the apathy that seems to be spreading through the millennial generation like wildfire. The lyrics are pointed, as they always are with Future of the Left, but at no point do they become preachy or pontificating, while the music is forceful enough to not only emphasise the message on each and every song but to also drive those messages quite emphatically home. Safely through the front door with said door then locked behind just to make sure.

The Peace and Truce of Future of the Left is a dark and dynamic listen that's relentless in both its content and its approach, which makes it really quite gripping.
