Apr 27, 2011He pushes the notion further on the brilliantly melodic, ennui-ridden baroque pop ballad "Anti-D," in which Blur's "karaoke songs" from "The Universal" have been replaced by the Wombats' own songs, which are better than "citalopram" and "to be prescribed as freely as any decongestants." The song, like the rest This Modern Glitch, makes the case for the Wombats as both rock stars and fools in their own pop star sitcom.
May 17, 2011Apparently 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.

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… Expand
