"A thrilling if sometimes exhausting listen. WSP mix styles and genres, happily hopping from one to another in the course of a single tune like frogs on acid."
"The band's hardest hitting album yet. WSP's music still sounds wildly exciting and very much still on track. "
""The music is hard edged and uncompromising and the playing universally excellent". Ian Mann enjoys a performance by WorldService Project and takes a look at their new album "Serve"."
