THE ALMIGHTY / Crank (1994)

The Almighty got heavier yet again on their fourth studio album and seemed to forget what it was that had made them interesting before. It's a competent hybrid of grunge and traditional British rock but is oh-so-very boring. They added some double kick and wanky guitar moments that really don't fit with the aesthetic they had before. I listened to it from start to finish for the first time since I got it for the purposes of this review and was left wondering why I bothered.

Songs of Note: None.

0½ because they had Andy Cairns guest out of 5
