  • Summary: The latest solo release for the British singer-songwriter is a concept album about a fictional place called Glue Town where the townspeople have become two-and-a-half-inches tall after 10 tons of top-secret weaponized glue was accidentally spilled after the end of World War II.

    The melodies are engaging, and the turns of phrase are typically sardonic, with song highlights arriving via the breezy but narratively decadent "Everybody's Coming Together for the Summer" and the winking opener, "Angry Man on a Small Train." It's also nearly impenetrable for anyone outside of the U.K., as it's immeasurably steeped in the region's culture and vernacular.

    This may not be an album you’d revisit often, but we should be very glad that it, and its unique, maverick creator, exists.

    Haines' mean-spirited gifts abide, but Airfix cannot mend a broken spirit. [Jun 2018, p.28]

    It's hardly surprisingly that it's less interesting musically than it is lyrically. ... That said, there's not a dull moment here. [Jul 2018, p.111]
