Right Hand on My Heart [MP3]
     


 


Clocking in at just 37 minutes, Mission Control may run a little shorter than Give ‘Em All a Big Fat Lip, but its relative brevity insists any listener to take on multiple plays. Like the band, who have since enlisted the permanent addition of bassist Tim Deaux, the album sounds like something complete, that survived the changes that were necessary to make it. It is also something that will in all likelihood end up being one of the best rock albums of the year.—Mike Hilleary
