Entertainment Reviews:

Magnet - p.56
"[T]he band's twee-ish melodies are still firmly in place, and the album has its softer acoustic moments -- but the big slabs of rock all over IN THE BELLY OF THE BRAZEN BULL help give it a fantastic heft."
Q (Magazine) - p.103
4 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] sees The Cribs back to a three-piece and reinvigorated as a result....The lyrics are more introspective and personal than before."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.92
3 stars out of 5 -- "The drolly titled closer, 'Arena Rock Encore With Full Cast,' is actually a concise and classy pop song with a tune that lingers long in the memory."
Uncut (magazine) - p.71
"[T]he suite produced by the band is the most fascinating, starting with the fine dirge 'Stalagmite' and culminating in the ace, sardonic 'Arena Rock Encore With Full Cast'."

The Cribs return to their classic trio lineup after the departure of Johnny Marr on In the Belly of the Brazen Bull, which also finds the Jarman brothers returning to their classic, heavy guitar pop sound. The Jarmans recorded the album with Dave Fridmann at New York's Tarbox Studios and with Steve Albini at Chicago's Electrical Audio as well as London's Abbey Road, underscoring the brothers' fondness for indie ideals and classic rock melodies. Raw but accomplished, tuneful yet noisy, songs such as "Come On, Be a No One" prove that on In the Belly of the Brazen Bull, the Cribs are more comfortable with their contradictions than ever.
