It is no secret that a lot of Biffy Clyro's longer-serving fans are disillusioned with the direction the band are taking. A move towards the mainsteam has seen them start to produce more polished, rounded recordings, compared to the heavy, angst-filled grunge that they wrote and performed so explosively on their debut album, 'Blackened Sky'.

Their musical journey has seen them grace aspects of prog, metal, and the brand of pre-emo which Pearl Jam and Weezer accomplished before them. Throughout their career as musicians, Biffy's creativity has to be their most delightful attribute. The time changes and instrumental fills, as well as the majestic and sometimes outrageous lyrics that grace 'Blackened Sky', 'The Vertigo of Bliss' and 'Infinity Land' make for genuinely interesting and thrilling music.

With 'Puzzle' came a sound more suited to, for want of a better word, 'pop'. Biffy had finally hit the mainstream, and to some extent, following the progression of their earlier albums, this was a natural move. 'Puzzle' blended the band's thirst for new ideas and concepts with frontman Simon Neil's grief and apathy following his mother's death, with a smoother sound which the band hadn't looked to release before.

With 'Only Revolutions' comes the band's triumphant proclamation that they have made it big on the rock scene. This album is packed full of massive songs, with huge choruses and heart-felt lyrics. It bleeds power and emotion from start to finish. Almost every song is anthemic in terms of content and quality. As a fan of Biffy's older material as well as their new, this album is just as good as any of the others- it is just different to how they began. And what is wrong with that? After all, there would be no point recording the same music over and over again.

Now I'm going to try and review this album in isolation. This is going to be really hard because I've been a fan of the Biffy for a long, long time and my internal fanboy is screaming to slate certain parts of this album, but I will resist until later.

This a strong rock album; much better than a lot of the dross that is currently circulating the Chart toilet bowl. It has catchy sing-a-long choruses and well written, memorable songs. As a snapshot of modern rock it's brilliant and shows that there can be still very eclectic side to rock music. This album firmly shows two fingers to all the Sassenach indie bands that are constantly farted out on Radio 1 playlists. For general fans of pop/rock music this is excellent and I fully recommend that you buy it if you're looking for something different.

Now for the fanboy review....
If you're looking for old Biffy then you're not going to find it here. This band has changed greatly since their first three albums. This radio friendly, slickly produced album continues and enlarges what Puzzle started with tracks like The Captain and Mountains being instant radio hits. If you're very open minded about this then you will be able to appreciate what's on here, but don't think you're going to get much of what was on Blackened Sky, The Vertigo of Bliss and Infinity Land. Admittedly, Biffy Clyro were a niche band; they had a small following and a very, very alternative sound, so this is them trying to broaden their appeal. It will not sit well with some of the old fans, but personally I can appreciate what they're trying to do. It's not my favourite album by a long shot, but it does show originality and spirit that is sadly lacking in current popular rock music.

I was only going to download Many of Horror which I thought would be the stand out track, glad I didn't!
Take a few listens, ignore the weird lyrics at times and you've got an original sounding thumping good rock Cd!
Highlights are MoH, Bubbles, Mountains, Captain, God & Satan.

Biffy Clyro are defintly getting better. They just can't write a bad song anymore. Even the weaker songs are really good, and Simon's lyrics are great and at times mental as ever. There are some standout songs here, such as the incredibly catch Born on a Horse and fast paced single That Golden Rule. Hopefully this will push them into the mainstream, as they are deserving of it.
