AllMusic Review by

After a four-year hiatus -- not counting the many solo projects, collaborations, and other odd detours that filled the gap -- the Mekons return to action with Me, another sterling addition to their catalog. Jon Langford's boozy adventures with the Waco Brothers and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts have clearly influenced tracks like "Gin & It" and "Whisky Sex Shack," while "Tourettes" and "Belly to Belly" are just as snotty as anything the band unleashed two decades earlier; indeed, while Me doesn't really add anything new to the Mekons canon, it also doesn't take anything away -- even going on the two-decade mark, they remain the truest representation of the punk spirit around.
