However the finished album sees the band reverting to base instincts with the chug-paced, heart-tweaking, stadium-size choruses of 'Take Back the City' and 'Lifeboats.' Unit-shifting, radio-clogging business taken care of, they allow themselves freer rein with the urgent, almost hardcore-fast and uncomfortably confessional 'Disaster Button.'
