    The music don't sound bad but the electronic parts are not my thing. Not to much songs that really where that special. Just some good music but nothing special!

    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.

    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

    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!

  1. Aside from a thin outer veil, This Modern Glitch is a disappointment from a band who most listeners were probably only hoping to get a few catchy singles from.

    The band's power chorus-penning know-how is evident each of these slick and sometimes over-polished ten tracks. [Jun 2011, p.125]

    Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner can pull off this kind of mopey swagger while still tapping toes, but for all of their infectious dance-floor grooves, The Wombats could stand to lighten up a bit.
