A flawed, but still enjoyable, album, End of the Millennium Psychosis Blues saw That Petrol Emotion take a step back from the headlong rush of their two previous efforts. If "The Price of My Soul" is just a little bit too worthy, then there are plenty of fine moments to counterbalance it, such as the whimsical "Candy Love Satellite" and "Groove Check" (indie dance five years before it happened). But the key track is Sean O'Neill's "Cellophane." People had always nagged him about writing about the Troubles when he was a member of the Undertones. You can catch his unmitigated, unabridged opinion about it here.
