With their superb first album 'The End Of The Pier', The Workhouse managed to fuse the influences of the post-rock giants of the day with the often unfairly overlooked melodrama of Kitchens Of Distinction. It was a thrilling emotional ride. 'Flyover' is some twenty minutes shorter in length but its concise approach still finds space for some drawn out, passionate music. One of the key differences this time is that there are more vocal tracks; many of which recall the approach of Redjetson in the way that the bruising vocals and the guitars push and grind for a state of emotional exhaustion so much so that 'Boxing Day's lyric of "The world is a brighter place now" seems more than a little ironic. Elsewhere, the towering title track is the most ecstatic of the sung songs and the pretty Kitchens OD-style signatures on 'Big Sam' make it the stunning, shimmering centrepiece of the record. In fact, from start to finish, this is a real, euphoric sugar rush of a record.
