These New Puritans second album, Hidden, has been greeted with a rapturous reception in the U.K. and Europe and recent reviews are hailing it “the first masterpiece of the decade.” A bit hyperbolic, if you ask me. But hey, what do I know? I invite you to form your own judgment by listening to the track here. For me, it’s a bit too Gregorian; dragging chains and a staccato bass drum only succeeded in reminding me of Monty Python and left me searching for the nearest Bible with which to smack myself.
