"Liverpool four-piece Clinic is a one-trick pony. But just because a decorated racehorse only goes fast and turns left doesn't make him less of a champion. Like The Jesus and Mary Chain, Clinic stamps out roughly hewn, frothing pagan surf that's part cryptic disassociation, part manic confrontation. Following 2004's more glazed Winchester Cathedral, the ritualistic slur of Clinic's fourth full-length harkens back to the band's craggier, coltish daze. Strident urgency imbues the slide-streaked ""Family,"" the melodica-peppered ""Children of Kellogg,"" and the stroboscopic ""If I Could Read Your Mind,"" while ""Animal/Harvest"" and ""Harvest (Within You)"" provide haunted counterpoints."
