8/10 Dave Staff review, 19 August 2010
The newie from Klaxons has all the hallmarks of a great record..well, its got a Cat in a space suit on the front cover. Which gets my vote any day of the week, sir. The songs have oblique references to space and time travel. Which also gets the nod from me sir. It has a dry sound that do sent pulverize your ear holes, it sort of rubs them fondly. The single (first song) is called "Echos" and it has the flava. The rest of the album is actually quite hard to decipher. Its like hanging out with a Ket-head at a festival who yells a lot about Pynchon and dimensions in time and space..you know, the Golden Void and all that. It's not as good as the first Klaxons album, but upon reflection I think it might be a grower. Its disarmingly impossible to sum it up when you only get to hear 60% of the fecker. From what I did hear I liked some of it..hated some of it as well but as I stated before it might be a grower. It didn't set my soul on fire but it didn't extinguish the light that burns within either...I might have ingested Ket by mistake before work too...a potential great album. Note; Dave hasn't come to work under the influence of Ketamine...he's smacked off his face!!!!
