**** This is quite a consistent effort, I think it slightly improves on Brothers in that regard, which had a lot of ups and downs, but the high points of Brothers were probably a little stronger than the high points here. Still overall this is a very good album.
***** The main thing is that it gets there. It thankfully doesn't overstay its welcome and has a number of their best songs. To me it's an album of two halves because the first five tracks stand out. 4.5 Last edited: 03/06/2014 13:54
***** Joah, also die Aushängeschilder von EC sind klar «Gold On The Ceiling» und «Lonely Boy». Die starke 5* für das Album wird aber auch durch Beiträge wie «Little Black Submarines» oder «Run Right Back» ins Ziel gerettet.
**** I guess it's just not my thing. I mean I like it but not as much as most of this site (and a lot of the world) seem to. There are parts where I like the beats and the guitar but I think it's just a little bit weak especially in terms of vocal and overall catchiness. Then again this isn't pop where both of those really matter so I don't know why I keep expecting it...<br><br>The tracks I enjoyed the most were Lonely Boy, Little Black Submarines and Mind Eraser.
****** I admit that I haven't given this album a full listen through until now, and I regret not doing so earlier as this was brilliant.<br><br>I believe that I gave every song on the album the 4* option or greater. It all just seemed to fit together very well, and every song was likable (as suggested through many of my reviews for each song being just "cool").<br><br>I'm guessing that I probably would've found this to be one of the best albums of 2011.<br><br>The absolute standouts of the album were "Lonely Boy", "Gold On The Ceiling" and "Little Black Submarines".
