Music Critic Score
How the Music Critic Score works
A new Dub Pistols album is always a cause for celebration, and Speakers and Tweeters, the duo's third, is no exception. A tighter and more directed set than Six Million Ways to Live, it's also a bit less adventurous, as the Pistols rein in their more fanciful musical experimentation in favor of focusing on the vocals. This is particularly notable on the entertaining but virtually superfluous cover of the Specials "Gangsters." They so perfectly conjure up the original, even bringing in Terry Hall to recut his own vocals, that one has to work hard to spot the difference.
