Vocally, Harcourt’s never been on better nor more imaginative form, and the same could be said for the musical reach. He’s really opened up the paint box on this one, and the title track reaches filmic proportions. You can feel the heat of those chugging rhythms bringing to life industrial scenes of yore – they may be historical, but the issue is firmly in the here and now. He sings: “These furnaces still want more/These furnaces never know when to quit”, and seems to be commentating on our endless consumerism, continuing its destructive path of pollution and melting ice caps.
