One of those records where things have been pieced together well enough, but it remains somehow unsatisfactory. Barren Womb (lame name, guys) bill themselves as noise-rock but there’s also a garagey hyperactivity here that leaves 'Lizard Lounge' sounding like some justifiably forgotten Mans Ruin obscurity. While there's an undeniable catchiness to material like 'Hairy Palms' there's also something obvious and try-hard about it all – like the bigmouthed kid at school who chats an entertaining game about prodigious drinking, shagging and drug consumption but never quite convinces their audience.
