Gob started their career over 20 years ago, so some of you may be simply too young to know who they are. Even if you were listening to music back in the ’90′s you could be forgiven for not recalling them; after all they’ve only put out one album in the past 10 years, and that one was way back in 2007. To make matters worse, they’ve been promising us a new album since 2009, so many of us just stopped paying attention. But anyway, here we are, it’s 2014 and we have a new Gob album on our hands. Was it worth the wait? Yes, probably. They may not be blazing any new trails into the 21st century, but at least they are doing us the great favour of not rehashing their own musical past.
