4000 Weeks Holiday
suffers from a polished, radio-ready production that is entirely devoted to Ian Dury's
fascination with disco and lite-funk. Over these slick backing tracks, Dury
runs through a familiar litany of working-class anthems, love songs, social commentaries and bad jokes, all delivered with noticeably less inspiration than before. Despite a couple of bright moments, 4000 Weeks Holiday
at a creative nadir.
