Andy Falkous encourages fans to read review "if you'd like to hear about our album as represented by the fingers of a constipated horse".

More Future of the Left More Future of the Left

Often outspoken, nearly always witty Andrew Falkous of Future Of The Left has hit out at popular online music tastemakers Pitchfork after a lukewarm and somewhat personal review of the band's latest album The Plot Against Common Sense appeared on the site today.

Falkous took to twitter this afternoon, Australian time, to give his opinion of the review as well as the album.

The reviewer, Ian Cohen, gave the album a score of 6.0 (out of ten), though had a number of comments about Falkous' songwriting, the general notion being that his penchant for witty lyricism and overall songcraft skills had diminished over the years.

Of the song Robocop 4: Fuck Off Robocop, Cohen said:

"I can say with a fair degree of certainty that 2012 will not see a more stupendously awesome song title or a worse song attached to it."

To which Falkous replied:

The Plot Against Common Sense is released in Australia on Friday 8 June via Remote Control.
