Oh yeah, another one of those humorous ‘concept’ albums where the musicians dress up in costume and throw around ‘amusing’ song titles and lyrics? The sort of outlook that instantly makes you think that the bands don’t really have any confidence in what they are doing so they do it all in a tongue in cheek jokey way so as to avoid any criticism of their ‘art’. Believe me, being a joke band will not protect you from criticism Zeeb, oh no.
So it was with reluctance and a complete refusal to become subsumed by the pages of Zeeb lore accompanying the CD that I started listening. And guess what? It turns out they’re quite good. Bugger. If they just ditch the masks and space paraphernalia they may just be taken (gulp) seriously.
