Don't Do It!

DO IT!, Liverpudlian band Clinic's fifth studio outing, really didn't do it for me.
The critically-acclaimed, publically-ignored group seem to have set out to be deliberately obtuse with this record, and as a result it surely won't be the shot-in-the-arm for their commercial shortcomings they so desperately need.
For the normally fast-paced indie band's distinctive raw sound is, on this LP, ramshackle and cumbersome, and near-totally bereft of hooks or tunes.
And as a result, without some reconstructive surgery next time around, the eclectic Clinic could tragically no longer be in operation.
