The guys in the band play all the instruments, and while they certainly do give up the funk, it's a complex, polyrhythmic, African sort of funk, rather than booty-shaking grooves. Where the lyrics used to be strange and abstract, they are ...

The guys in the band play all the instruments, and while they certainly do give up the funk, it's a complex, polyrhythmic, African sort of funk, rather than booty-shaking grooves. Where the lyrics used to be strange and abstract, they are becoming increasingly political and, frankly, hackneyed -- the percolating, pulsating grooves are sometimes weighed down by clunky platitudes like "We must nurture, we must labour/For our future we must cater" and "See them standing on the corner/Little boys with so much anger."
