Too many wrong notes? Maybe, but I've heard the alternative and this is much more preferable. In the "Rock In Opposition" tradition, Lost Crowns doesn't afford you the luxury of an obvious chord change. And it's lavishly entertaining! Either the catchiest Avant garde record or the dodgiest pop record you'll hear in 2019. Richard's writing and vocals are superb as always. Since discovering Cardiacs in 2012 and branching out to related acts, I've continued to hear some of the most inventive stuff out there, and this record takes the cake. Perhaps the crown, if it ever turns up. Adam Pearson
