Innovative, unexpected, futuristic. Just three words that can be used to describe the CD case - the CD pops out the top! Amazing.

4/10 Clinton Staff review, 12 May 2011

Innovative, unexpected, futuristic. Just three words that can be used to describe the CD case - the CD pops out the top! Amazing. Unfortunately the music within sounds something like a Stock, Aitken and Waterman produced Curiosity Killed the Cat album. Uber commercial polished rave p(l)op. The thanks list on the sleeve is phenomenal-  I've never met that many people in my whole life! Special thanks to Phil Collins for the syn-drum idea and Jamiroquai for guest scatting. There's a certain catchiness to some of the choruses which unveils some melodic sensibilities but overall its a brash modern technicolour pop album but a horribly soulless one. Not for me I guess.


9/10 Chris Waring Customer review, 8th June 2014

One of the most unashamedly summery albums in recent memory, this takes the template laid down on their first album - a uniquely British take on the LCD Soundsystem sound - and takes it in an even more glorious, melody-led, rhythm-conscious direction. Clearly brimming with confidence in the direction they've taken, they could have chosen any one of tracks off Pala as a single and had a hit with it.

Opener "Live Those Days Tonight" sets the bar high and it's infectious melody and hip-shaking rhythms are undeniable superior to anything they'd attempted before. You'll have succumbed well before the end. This is quite simply an album of outstanding songs, not just a few singles with some filler.

Make it the soundtrack to your summer, you won't be disappointed.
