This is such a loose canon, an individual in a sea of replicants, something to treasure before manufactured pop kills us all. And for all its eccentricities I can’t help feeling it was put together by someone in control of his vision as opposed to a ramshackle that made its way into the studio one lazy sunny afternoon. The vision provider is one Alex Ebert, an unloved addict with a penchant for school going vehicles. ‘Home’ was a success down under and there’s no reason to suggest it couldn’t be the same up over. The Zero Magnetics play like a less rigid Polyphonic Spree and I’m sure for most of the time playing in the band is a complete blast. From a certain angle Ebert even looks like Jesus, I’m sure the band’s followers already think he’s a God. KD

good song that doesn’t really reflect the content of the rest of the album, which unfortunately isn’t very good.
