*** Considering how forward thinking "Sempiternal" was, this is pretty disappointing. It's like they've stripped back all the things that made that album interesting, like the syncopated rhythms or the minor electronic touches. What you're left with is just not overly interesting. Yes I'll laugh when this shoots right into the iTunes top 10 chart in due time, but really by this point, it's not like it doesn't generally fit in with that anyway.
I will say that the outro from when they have the choir backing the drums is quite effective, but it is a shame to hear Oli holding back so blatantly that it may as well be a Thirty Seconds To Mars song. Bumping it up to a 3.3 for that part though.
**** War einige Stunden auf Platz 1 der UK iTunes Charts. Doch sehr erstaunlich wie sehr die Band den Pop-Kurs forciert, der Erfolg gibt ihnen recht, leider leidet die Qualität, aber so schlecht ist das Ding nun auch wieder nicht.
