Most helpful critical review
I've heard better; I've heard worse.

This has some very good moments, but most of them are on the first CD - the original "Bad Blood". "Pompeii", "Bad Blood" and "Weight Of Living Pt. II" are excellent, as are some of the other tracks on CD1, but CD2 is rather samey after the first few songs and doesn't do as much for me. I lost interest after "Durban Skies".
Dan Smith sings well and the rest of the band support nicely, both vocally and instrumentally, but I think perhaps more attention to quality rather than quantity would have been a better option. Having said that, a debut which highlights a band with promise.
