    Dull uninspired political electronicore garbage. Every song has some underlying problem at the heart of its message like corruption or global warming, there's also some boring electronica in the background behind Rou Reynolds shouting and ranting. The final song Constellations is the stand-out track with an impressive vocal delivery and less of the dull electronics and "breakdowns"Dull uninspired political electronicore garbage.

If this sort of thing suits you, then buy it it is a good album, just not my type of album. Expand

    For the most part, A Flash Flood of Colour revels in a unique, organized chaos, and while it's a demanding and often exhausting listen, it's a call to arms which the flagging U.K. guitar band scene could do with more of.

    Disenchantment should always be this spellbinding.

    The positives are overshadowed by petulant observations to politics which is hard to take seriously when dire lyrics like "Yabba dabba do one, Son."
