It was a good album without doubt, but compared to their latest, it doesn't hold a match to it, let alone a tourch. This album hasn't got anything quite like Insomnia or Buck Rogers, but that's not what this record about (well apart from the dreadful godzilla). There are some very good tracks, such as the first single 'come back around', 'comfort in sound', 'find the colour' and the wonderful closing track 'moonshine', and these songs alone… Read more
