5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection, 25 Mar 2013
This is the perfect pop album.
After behaviour people were wondering if the PSB had grown up, moved away from their dance synth pop and matured, 3 years later we caught a glimpse of those pointy hats and orange jumpsuits....and the Very phase had arrived.

I loved Happiness, it was a perfect pop album with some truly outstanding tracks on it, so i was very much looking forward to Exile (Even though title track "Miracle" left me feeling a bit grey.

This album is a grower though, it took a few listens but eventually the darkness of the album fades and slowly little chicks of light start to shine through until eventually it hits you, there are some cracking songs on here, The songwriting can seem a bit amateurish at times but it doesn't distract from the overall feel of the album, On first listen i was wondering why they had moved into Muse/Coldplay territory but after a few listens it does make sense and they have evolved into a… Read more
