to start with, i apologise for that title, its a bit obvious frankly. but there you go.
immaculate album, truly. not a poor track.
jaggy snake is an immediate track, that really stands out, and for me, theres no such man as crasp stuck out, because its the lyrics from jaggy snake, which i had heard prior to the first listen of the record. i laughed alot, on the bus. loudly...
the weird dance beat prelude gives away to the hip swaying glitter and trauma. the weapons are concealed sounds like a bizarre cop show soundtrack with its blaring horns, and then turns into the spiky guitars that you and i both love. wave upon wave upon wave, the tribute to simon neils late mother, is both beautiful and ugly. each song is different, and its obvious the band are progressing. hoorah.
this took me a while to really get into - theres less heavy guitar and more screaming, which i wasnt expecting - and theres probably still more for me to get my head round. if you have just heard biffy, and want to start with them, id reccomend you blackened sky, the debut, which is more accessible and a better place to start really. but if you love em, why dont you have it already? its damn good
mon the biffy
