UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 10.0 |   The Guardian

    It’s the sense of conviction that seals the deal: MegaDave sounds fired-up and furious throughout

  10. 5.8 |   Consequence Of Sound

    It’s political without being overt, the production is strikingly heavy, and the good tracks outweigh the bad
