I'm really disappointed in this effort from BOT as I personally think they've toned down way to much and have sold out to radio.
I'm actually surprised JJJ went anywhere near this as it's to pop and has that samey sound going through out the record.
When I first heard 'Lanterns' I had grave fears I wouldn't enjoy this as much as their previous material and I was right.
The only real highlight is the lead single 'This Fire' but even that is stretching the friendship.
Very average offering for now but i'll let it grow before deciding it's true fate, a poor 3 for now.
*****
A strong album, particularly through the first half. While it's much softer than previous efforts it's still very nicely done.
*****
While I did like Birds Of Tokyo it wasn't until the 3rd single was released from this album where they were finally able to give me a 6 star track in When The Night Falls Quiet. Despite that there were no other tracks on this album that I would put any higher then 4 stars but most of the tracks on this are good with This Fire and Boy being the only ones I found average. I was torn as to whether I preferred their previous album which had 2 5 star tracks or this which had 1 6 star track and all but 2 of the others were around 3.5 - 4 stars. In the end I think their previous album was overall slightly better I guess. Overall score. 4.7.
