Therapy? - We're Here To The End Album Review
Posted by Guest Writer on Thu, 11 Nov 2010.
In March 2010 Therapy? performed and recorded three nights at The Water Rats Theatre in London as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. Compiled from those recordings, ‘We’re Here To The End’ is the band’s first official live album since their debut release in 1991.
Maybe not the best sound production (especially compared to their 2003 live video Scopophobia, which is highly recommended) and Andy Cairns seems to devote a little more vigor to his playing than his singing but two decades and thirteen albums later, the Irish trio sound as tight and energetic as ever.
From the opening bars of Screamager to last hanging strains of Teethgrinder, it’s obvious that both the band and the audience are having a blast. What more can you ask?
Although missing a few classic Therapy? tunes from albums like Semi-Detached and High Anxiety, this 36 track, double disc album is not a bad representation of their back catalogue.
‘We’re Here To The End’ is out now.
