AllMusic Review by

The Macc Lads probably aren't the first band to preserve the sound of a real live fart on vinyl. But they are one of the first to invite the perpetrator of the ensuing symphony to tour with them as their support act. "Mr Methane" tells the rest of the story, as the world's most deliriously disgusting band ignite their fifth album with a chorus that you're certain they must have used in the past...but they haven't. "Gimme gimme gimme gimme alcohol," they demand, and we are launched once again into a madcap world of sex and beer-fuelled mayhem, peopled by such delightful characters as "Fellatio Nelson," "Man in the Boat," "Two Stroke Eddie," and the "Apprentice Dentist," who you should simply hope and pray never turns up at your local surgery. In fact, you probably wouldn't want any of the Macc Lads hanging around your house, your sister, your local bar...but ha! They probably are already, which is why you already know half the words to this album, before you've even played it through, and it doesn't matter how ashamed you are of what you did last night, the Macc Lads did it worse. Good for them.
