A blazing return to form: curiously, the band sounds far more settled and relaxed within themselves on this new studio outing than was the case on Heaven on a Stick. Credit is due to the excellent production by Paul Tagg and Phil Punch, who sand away some of the slickness of Blind Ear and the occasional fussiness of Heaven on a Stick without any loss of power; mostly, they just manage to increase the voltage. Whatever the reason, the band sound like they're all pulling in the same direction again and, next to Blind Ear, this is the Rifles' best-sounding record. Hot Records. 2005.

"FYI--the Celibate Rifles have been around since the early eighties. They're one of the all-time great Australian bands! Since most of they're stuff is not available in the states, start out with the best of "Platters Du Jour." Other great Aussie bands to check out: Radio Birdman, The Scientists, The Lime Spiders, The New Christs, Eastern Dark, early Hoodoo Gurus, and of course Nick Cave's earlier band The Birthday Party."

"If this isn't their finest album, it still has to be considered one of their best. Great guitar work, cool lyrics and excellent song writing make this an extremely satisfying collection of songs for both old fans familiar with earlier albums and new fans who haven't had the good fortune to hear one of Australia's best bands."
