from launchpad on teletext:

"this download only track from their next album doesn't quite live up to reuben's previous output,nevertheless,a grimy,passionate slice of metal rock that's still head and shoulders above the rest"
3 1/2 out of 5

DiS review
'Blamethrower' comes as a download-only single some four months prior to Reuben's new album titled 'Very Fast, Very Dangerous'. While it's both fast and dangerous, whether or not it's actually interesting remains questionable.

Vicious from the outset, this feels looser and more careless musically and lyrically than the majority of the awesome debut 'Racecar Is Racecar Backwards'. The whole spoken stream-of-conciousness rant that kicks off mid-song feels particularly out of place and over-done.

Despite the promising start, 'Blamethrower' feels more throwaway than promising. Luckily, two more singles proper are due before the release of album - pun titles aside, here's hoping for something a little meatier.

2 and a half stars

Well the NME liked it but I don't have the review to type up. I do remeber one phrase though- "As angry as a wasp with a rhino up its arse" or something like that. Very Happy
The middle of the song rant is probably the best thing about the song, and the DIS review complaints about its shortcoming seems more about not realising the change of direction going on rather than a proper criticism of the song.

But there you go. But everyone else likes it, so it's a good start.

Rocksound gave it 6/10 saying that it wont gain them any new fans and that they havent progressed from the sound they achieved on racecar..

These may not be totally right because I got them from some guy's blog, but here goes:

Quote:
We all have responsibilites
We all have the social debt
And if there is a man free of guilt
I have not met him yet
So now your backed in a corner
Your under verbal attack
They're pointing fingers like guns in your face
And nobody got your back!

You gotta blame somebody for all your fucking mistakes
Or someone else will blame (?)
You should take responsibility for what you did
But you just point your finger at somebody innocent and say
No i don't feel so fucking good
I need somebody to blame!

So one day somebody asks you how you feel and insted of telling the truth you read off a list of things you think they want to hear because its easier that way. And so they treat you like this completely different person because all they know about you is misinformation and you gradually detatch yourself from all your actions thinking...

I don't know why i don't feel what i say!
I don't know why i don't feel what i say!
You've been lying about your feelings for so long!
You've forgotten who you are!!!!!

You gotta blame somebody for all your fucking mistakes
Or someone else will blame (?)
You should take responsibility for what you did
But you cannot admit it and your still thinking
No i don't feel so fucking good
I need somebody to blame!
