The Visions - Into The Nightlife

Polished but painfully average "widescreen" indie rock from Cambridge boys with lyrics so bad that at one point I got up, turned the record off and shouted at the CD player like it had soiled the carpet. Nifty opener 'Morrissey's Tongue' aside, the rhythm section is anonymous throughout, the guitarist seems to have one default setting (the exact point where The Edge falls asleep on Jonny Coldplay's shoulder) and the singer is in dire need of a Strepsil and a kick up the arse. This is an appallingly dull record.
