Dunno. But he's entitlted to his opinion like the rest of us!
I think the MSP's are unfairly maligned personally, probably because they had an ability to get up people's noses with their early bragging. I thought they were all mouth and no trousers till I heard Motorcycle Emptiness which is a glorious record.
Thought the albums were rather uneven, but they made some great singles in the 90's. I thought A Design for Life, being released when it was (first release post-RE) was a fabulous statement of intent.
