4.5 superbIts All In Your Fucking Head :) | November 20th 14

No soundoff could possible do this record justice.

4.5 superbTheNotrap | August 7th 11

The previous is definitely my favourite but all their records with Fish are brilliant and Clutching at Straws is one of those timeless records I never get tired of listening. Probably their darkest and introspective record to date. All songs are amazing but my favourites are Warm Wet Circles, That Time Of The Night (The Short Straw), Incommunicado, Torch Song and Sugar Mice. Absolute classic.

4.5 superbperkunas | January 13th 08

This is the last album with their singer Fish and they were not happy anymore with each other.
And that's what makes this album so special because it sounds like everybody in the band tried to show to the others that he was the most important member in the band. So this really brought out the best of each member and resulted their best album I think.
