Album Review Titus Andronicus - An Obelisk

Titus Andronicus - An Obelisk

If you’re partial to a bit of blue-collar punk, this is likely to be right up your street.

Rating:

Over six studio albums, one thing became clear about Titus Andronicus: those who like them, really like them. You’d have had to in order to get through 2015’s ‘The Most Lamentable Tragedy’, a five-act ‘rock opera’ that lasted longer than a football match. Even the group’s most recent LP, ‘A Productive Cough’ released last year, was testing in its mellow demeanour. Of course, by the time Patrick Stickles’ barely-enunciated howl repeats “Nothin’ but trouble, man” in ‘Troubleman Unlimited’ in his best Kurt Cobain, it’s clear ‘An Obelisk’ ain’t no softie. If you’re partial to a bit of blue-collar punk, this is likely to be right up your street.
