    This album isn't as chaotic as the title may have you guessing, but is probably the best work of the Futureheads to date. Their first album was amazing, don't get me wrong, but this album manages even more catchy tunes to it than any of their other albums did. From Struck Dumb, to Heartbeat Song, to The Connector, it's all about high energy, upbeat tunes with one purpose: To get you onThis album isn't as chaotic as the title may have you guessing, but is probably the best work of the Futureheads to date.

They flow through each song with mastery, never letting go of you until the album is done. Expand

    The rest is solid enough--existing fans will find plenty to love. But this chaos is well under control. [Summer 2010, p.84]

    Four albums in and their metronomic nursery rhymes are still capable of delivering pop thrills. [June 2010, p. 104]
  3. Though The Futureheads' established formula still sticks steadfast, there are enough wild cards peppered throughout to prove that, far from stuck in a rut, they're still moving playfully forward.
