Last Under The Sun - "Gone" CD Review from Itchy Bum 'Zine:
.....To all intents and purposes Last… are a punk band, but they’re a punk band which transcends punk and takes it off in a unique direction – one that defies labelling. Sure they have fast songs, and sure the drums can, on occasion, pound you into submission, but many of the songs are built around a slow-burning melody that grows and grows as the song progresses. And it’s this quality that sets Last Under The Sun apart from the pack. And that, my friends, is certainly no bad thing. We need a few more bands doing something “different”. - Itchy Bum 'Zine 2010
"Gone" CD Review - Rock Links / Nick J. Townsend’s Monthly Column
"One of the greatest (if not the greatest) bands to come out of England in the past 10 years. That’s a bold statement and yes I made it because I totally believe it too. This band is brutal, hard hitting, powerful, with deep lyrics, genius, talented and amazing live too. I could go on, and I will. The guitars and riffs this band produce are world class and will fuel the hardest stomper. The best of the best at what they do. They are hardcore, they are punk, they are metal, they are a million other great things, Last Under The Sun are the band I want playing at my funeral. I think that says it all really. If a band makes you want to hear them after you are dead then that truly must be the ultimate thing." - Rock Links / Nick J Townsend’s Monthly Column
Last Under The Sun - "Gone" CD Review - Paul E.D Music World Radio
"You will not get a suntan, but a nice ear blast.
This is not a full throttle hardcore punk album with 25 two second songs.  This is more a roller-coaster of sounds. From short 3 minute songs to 5-6 epic offerings, if you like punk with a more eclectic, 'off your head' edge; with quiet electronic element in live instrument form, then check this out.
From subtle songs to ballistic missiles. Starts with Time For Your Leaving then dives into Aphex Twin live band style Painting Is Dead.
The trolley song is what you would expect on the album. The punk/indie cross, thrashing the guitar riffs then to what sounds like like acoustic cuts. Great guitar riffs with vocals from Mark. The song reminds me of The Wedding Present.
If you were expecting straight down the road raw punk, this will take you by surprise. Half of the Police Bastard line up on this album, which is the reason for the crossover sound.
If you want an album to leave you gasping for breath then this is for you.
If you have never heard this band before, think The Wedding Present crossed with Aphex Twin elements and fast guitar work" - Paul E.D Music World Radio (January 2010)

More words.....
" seems only fitting that their debut CDEP be a focused, uncompromising attack on callous warmongers everywhere.... the importance of the message being delivered utterly eclipses the medium that delivers it." Ian Glasper - Terrorizer Magazine - Issue 132 June 2005
"..a bass and rhythm section as tight as eberneezer scrooge.....Too short by half, this is nonetheless essential and extreme." Positive Creed fanzine
"..hardcore punk rock in total English style: fast and chaotic and like a fist to the head.....This will fuel you like Crazy." No Front Teeth Fanzine
"Last Under The Sun are one of the best hardcore bands around they create songs with a clear message and deliver them in crushing and uncompromising style." Will Munn Rhtyhm and Booze Fanzine
"..great hooks and a furious sense of energy driving the whole thing. This is one of the best punk rock records I've heard recently from Britain (Birmingham)" Reason to Believe #10 Fanzine
