    Apparently The Wombats only managed to write the one song for the album and so have decided to just repeat it ten times, offering little-to-no variation in tone or tempo--although to be fair to them, they do stick a different synth preset on for each song so you can tell them apart.

    What a transformation! A move to a more electro indie sound I believe has been well done by The Wombats. A modern catchy change for the genre I believe is a good thing!

    This Is a brilliant album with great songs, although the electronic parts may put some people off I loved those songs as they were different compared to their previous album and were something new, those who wanted an album simmerlar to the previous one will be dissapointed though as the band has gone for a more unique sound. It is also obvious that the band has matured a lot since their previous album and this is shown in their songs, as they are very different form their previous album.
    Standout songs being : Tokyo(Vampires And Wolves), Jump Into The Fog, Anti-D, Techno Fan and 1996.
    Overall a great album. 8/10

    Despite some negative reviews, this is a brilliant album. Although perhaps lacking some of the schoolgirl sing-along's of "Love, Loss..." it still packs some cracking choruses and is perhaps a tad more musical and grown up than the previous album. People expecting a duplicate of the first album may be disappointed, but this new album makes for a much better listen. Definitely worth a go. Full Review »
