At the time of its release about a year ago I didn't really know what to say about All In Good Time. While I was happy it was happening, I wasn't all that excited for the first Eddy Current Suppression Ring record in 8 years. And yet three or four listens in, probably in a slightly overwhelmed and fragile mood, I realised I very much needed this record. Even listening to the song Shoulder just now I'm transported to the feeling of joyous release I felt about a year ago. It's the triumph of real human creative energy in a hyper-commodified world. I don't think I can objectively divorce my feeling on this record from the many experiences I've had with ECSR, or the admiration for their mode of operation as a band (the model case study for how to be a 'cross over' band, without become bland), but maybe this is the best ECSR record. How does this record differ from other ECSR releases? Well, it's the band you know and love, but they've prioritised their pulsing energy and subtle strengths over trying to recreate a summer festival anthem. ItÕs got the best batch of Brendan's lyrics, still touching and personal but with some additional real deal social analysis. Essential no frills rock'n'roll that's full of inventiveness, 'vibe' and humanity. - Nic
