I'd always, rather patronisingly, thought of ES as a bit of a kid's band and never really gave them much consideration, but when a friend of mine who's a dreadful music snob found himself hooked on 'AFFOC' it occured that perhaps I was being rather snobbish myself and investigated this, Enter Shikari's third album and I must say that I'm exceptionally pleased that I did.
A Flash Flood of Colour couldn't more perfectly describe this album; the music is positively effervescent & energetic like a force of nature.
There is a pervading Dubstep feel to the record which is a perfect fit for Enter Shikari; aggressive, futuristic & above all immense fun.
With so many genuinely brilliant, inventive & well written songs on one tracklisting, pointing out favourites seems rather pointless.
To conclude; I defy anyone with either a rudimentary appreciation of music or an open mind to dislike this album, three records in and ES finally have taken to the skies and what is most exciting about that is that AFFOC just screams of further untapped potential.
