It's decent... But also very disposable.
You will like it for a week or two and them probably never want to hear it again.

No, I get it. The Mercury Prize is for "not that great" music, right? This totally wins.

A committee of bald, pudgy, bespectacled English men is definitely qualified to tell us where rock music is at.
