    It's brighter, somehow more optimistic album, in which sweet melodies surface from growling, howling guitars and a storm of whirling noise. [1 Sep 2012, p.51]

    Although some may wish for more diversity within the set (these songs contain a lot of the same techniques and styles), as well as more layers to flesh out the core songwriting, there's still plenty to like.

    These 10 songs often appear to be just elaborate jams, whipped up in the studio, with a few scribbled-down choruses added along the way.

    While it may occasionally get bogged down by its near constant need to reach the nosebleed seats, the desperation that the band emits ultimately feels inclusive rather than brazen.

    [Alberta Cross] appropriate the lolling blue country leanings, rock folksy aplomb and sultry gospel that kids love in Kings of Leon, and murk it up with the shrouded-cloud heaviness of their collective homelands.
