With a brutally tight, apparently steam-powered drummer, plus a pair of guitarists whose fingers moved as if mechanical, the Citizens played exciting, instantly catchy songs. Pleasing snapshots of weird melody appeared between riffs that were tighter than a nun’s pooper, and the vocalist, eternally hidden behind a swathe of hair, grunted and barked like a man deranged. A thoroughly convincing set." Jonathan Butcher ”
