The Cribs - Year of Hate

They’ve been the UK’s most consistently brilliant band for over a decade now, and there’s no sign of them letting that tag go soon.

There’s value in the unpolished gem. That’s something The Cribs know well. They’ve always had an ear for a killer hook or a sing-a-long verse. It doesn’t matter how much fuzz and grunge it’s packed under, it’ll still sparkle in the limelight.

That’s why their long-term dalliance with Steve Albini has been such an exciting concept. Now we’re finally starting to see the fruits of their endeavour, those theories of a dream team combination are holding true.

Like ‘In Your Palace’, ‘Year of Hate’ is as scrappy as The Cribs have ever felt - but in the best possible way. There’s a rawness to the recording that makes those shiny edges glisten all that brighter. A tensed muscle with a golden skin, it’s both strong and sharp. They’ve been the UK’s most consistently brilliant band for over a decade now, and there’s no sign of them letting that tag go soon. Stephen Ackroyd
