Well, Douglas has taken yet another turn for the better. Some of his best guitar work, trumpets, accordian(!!!), and sparse percussive work. The electronic work harkens back to the electronic reworkings of Fields of Rape and maybe Death of a Man.
The album is basiclly divided into two sections. The first are acoustic tracks with a bit of Boyd here and there. The tracks are all very good in sound quality and construction. These are some of DIJ's darker songs, but they have such a great and almost upbeat melody. I hesitate to use the word fun to describe this album, but it is.
The second section consists of radical, electronically altered versions of the first half. Dark, noisy, menacing... All very, very brilliant.
All in all, All Pigs Must Die continues the run that started with Operation Hummingbird and Take Care and Control. I fear it will all turn back into bland/weird folk soon enough, but for now I am loving it like a dog in carion.
