Album Review | POP-PUNK
The Cribs, ‘In the Belly of the Brazen Bull’
It sounds counterintuitive, but having one superlatively great song on your album can be a drawback, particularly when it’s one as instantly engaging as “Come On, Be A No-One,” from the UK trio’s fifth album. It makes it hard for the listener to move on to the rest of the record. In comparison to that hook-riddled snotty pop-punk gem, the rest of the songs here are less user-friendly, at least at first blush.
