    There is also a notably darker, murkier imperative at the heart of Original Colours and the results are sometimes a little introverted.

    Their approach is too fragile. Even as High Places grow up, seeing darker realms, leaving behind youthful nostalgia, they are not yet able to reach the top.

    It's something bigger, wilder, and less pop structured.

    For a group who traded so well in whimsy, who got off to such a kaleidoscopic start, Original Colors can feel unusually drab.

    Original Colors isn't extraordinary music.

    Ultimately, High Places have succeeded in doing something that, on paper, seems an impossibility: they've managed to make an album that is undeniably focused around rhythms sound like an absolute slog.
