    Ouch, this is bad bad bad rock. Read the glowing review in Q, picked it up and found over-produced, under-inspired music industry product.

    The first time I listened to this album I thought that it sounded like a well sized cheese sandwich without any bread, the second time around pretty much confirmed my suspections. Musically this is Biffy yet far removed from what Biffy have done in the past, whether it's good or bad no one can blame them for that.. call it natural progression, or an abandoning of progression?

Lyrically the themes or should I say theme becomes quite tiresome and repetitive after a few songs, I feel that after several listens I don't think I'm going to get anything more from this record, normally I would try to stick it out but .... I just can't do it any longer. Collapse

  1. A turn towards pop has alienated some fans of their earlier work, but almost everything here could be released as a single, and that’s an undeniably winning achievement.
  2. Can you hear it? It’s here! Biffy finally make that sprint-burst into the rock stratosphere and trample over the competition like badly tattooed elephants smashing through dead branches.
  3. It's likely that their slabs of noise are too explosive. But for Team Biffy, their followers, this is a strength, not a failing.
