Great 2nd album, been looking forward to it for so long. They've experimented a little bit, but still keeping some elements of Torches, which I love. Not 1 bad song on the album, and it really is a great mix, not disappointed at all. Saw them live yesterday at Troxy in London, and they were amazing. Love this band, and love this album! Highly recommend.

I have been living with this album a few weeks now, and have played it endlessly. I absolutely loved "Torches", and was very much looking forward to "Supermodel". Although it is lyrically darker, there are still the same great pop tunes and vocal harmonies running through this album. "Coming of Age" grabs you straight away, as does "Best Friend" and a couple of other tracks. Some songs take a little bit longer to worm themselves into your brain, but, after a few plays, you find yourself singing along to all them. I for one am not disappointed with this album, and would certainly buy their next one .

Format: Audio CD
Supermodel is the second studio album from the indie-pop-rock crossover band Foster The People.

The new album follows the success of their 2011 début Torches. Opinions aside for the moment, those looking for a second 'Torches' will be left wanting. Not to say that this record doesn't have its unashamedly pop moments ('Coming of Age', 'Are You What You Want to Be') but 'Supermodel' take a significant detour towards a more eclectic sound.

And no doubt this was fully intentional. Head man Mark Foster intended this record to be more 'gritty' and that it certainly is having been produced on the road during their 2012 tour in a portable studio. The record dips into various rock influences intended to extend as far back 'the kinks' and 'the clash' but actually stomping on more recent ground i.e. Thom Yorke ('Goats in Trees') and The Killers ('The Truth'). In fact often its very easy to forget what band you are listening to.

Lyrically the album deals with the (clichéd) "ugly side of capitalism". Infused into the music after the music was created (i.e. in a two stage process) the words often sit uncomfortably with the sound. But where the lyrics fail the music certainly excels. I bet you never expected Foster The People to produce a truly great track like 'Goats in Trees'.

The most exciting thing about this album is that the after scratching away the pop façade created by 'Torches', Mark Foster et al. have exposed a fascinating underbelly that shows intermittent signs of brilliance. This is not a 5* album but there are many outros and a few singular tracks that hint at a promising future.

Foster the People have out done themselves with this follow up album. A much more fluid/psychedelic experience than 'Torches' touching on themes of the dark side to consumerism and westerinsation of the world.

Every song has its own distinct place with no filler material to be seen.

Truly deserves a 5/5 and after this album I am so excited for their 3rd album and praying it follows in the pattern of MGMT with more experimenting and delving deeper into the unknown.

Perfect pop, and so much better than the utter dross that plagues the charts, if you loved Torches you will love this

I personally prefer this to Torches actually. But as some people have said, it signifies a slight change in direction without being too drastic. The gritty direction it has taken suits me more than Torches did. I can't stop listening to 'Nevermind' and 'Best Friend'. Great album from a great band!

FTP are trying to produce a different record here, but its no less entertaining than their first outing. Some of the tracks may take a few more listens than the more upbeat, catchy original album, but this gives a hint of future work which is going in a healthy direction for a 'malt whiskey' band; maturing with age!

Great Album. Still in the same style as previous album 'torches' but refreshingly new material from the band. Worth it
