Album Review Mini Mansions - Works Every Time

Mini Mansions - Works Every Time

Rating:

Ploughing the highs and lows of a past relationship, ‘Works Every Time’ finds Mini Mansions - the more synthy, processed project of QOTSA bassist Michael Shuman - veering between ‘80s-flecked longing (‘Works Every Time’), propulsive lustiness (‘This Bullet’) and a Marilyn Manson-esque demonic reworking of Edwyn Collins’ ‘A Girl Like You’. Impressively wide-ranging, it suggests that the trio’s next full-length should be anything but lacking in ideas.
