Review - The Minus 5 - The Lurking Barrister (Single)

The Minus 5 - The Lurking Barrister (Single)

2 out of 10

If the PR bumph and the music on two-thirds of this CD are anything to go by, the Minus 5 spend far too much time trying to be 'weird' and not enough being any good. The PR tells you precisely nothing. The first two tracks are hokey, countrified gibberish. Your Favourite Mess is pleasant enough in its Ben Folds way but doesn't make up for the ground already lost to garbled sentences and tedious 'Americana'.


1. The Lurking Barrister
2. It Won't Do You Any Good
3. Your Favourite Mess
