As with all the Tobacco albums so far, the frontman of Black Moth Super Rainbow dispenses with that group's sticky whimsy in favour of something harsher and noisier, but still insanely catchy and fun.
Ultima II Massage is his first album for new label Ghostly International and it's probably his best so far. It's got everything one has come to expect in a Tobacco project, only this time they are all turned up to ten. Or at least nine. There's not a weak song in the bunch, with hooks sharper than knives and the tightly wound and perfectly layered sound making it all go down smoothly.
