Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10
The Big Bang was witnessed by no soul, no creature of type was able to set it down and record it for posterity, all we are left with is the echoes, the background radiation as it seeps further into the distance, into the cold and unexplained black darkness that surrounds us and keeps us in our place as creatures with imagination but lacking in the power to explore beyond our grasp.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10
The air is punctured, the big bang of the angry, cross and disillusioned comes out across the scene of serenity with truth galloping beside it at such a rate of knots that it is possible to feel the strength of rightful bitterness as if it were a tornado, a hurricane on the verge of demolishing the insidious and the crass, the self serving and the out and out distasteful. This was the cold wind of reality that captured the mood but didn’t spoil it, that enhanced the reasons to which the town of Bootle has felt the pressure of for decades.
