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.
Enter Shikari's energetic 2007 debut 'Take To The Skies' ('Jonny Sniper'
is rarely beyond a paw's hairy reach!). Their new album 'A Flash Flood Of
Colour' doesn't charge off into any especially new directions and I, for
one, am perfectly happy that this should be so. St Albans can rest easily!
There are eleven tracks in the new set and the band's exhilarating mixture of
manic beats, dense sonic textures and shouty-shouty vocals are reassuringly
intact and still fresh as a daisy. Three and a bit ('Tribalism' being "the bit")
releases in (not counting the "live in Hatfield" party 'Live From Planet Earth')
and I remain happy to follow where they lead. ES have an ear for a good tune
and know how to string together some cracking harmonies to further augment
their well-oiled machine. "Rou" Reynolds is as fine a front-man as ever; from
a whisper to a roar his distinctive voice, whether carrying a good tune or
bellowing like the very devil, is as solid as a rock unbroken by stormy seas.
Powerhouse drummer Rob Rolfe, too, is an exemplary master of his craft.
There really isn't a bad egg in the box. From the manically raucous beats and
porcine synth grunts of 'Arguing With Thermometers'; through the beautifully
structured light and shade of 'Stalemate' (just loving the vocal arrangement!);
the well-meant eco-politics and bone-crunching thwack and grind of 'Gandhi Mate,
Ghandi' (one of their strongest inventions to date) and the glowing cadences
of the uplifting anthemic concluding track 'Constellations', this impeccable
little ensemble never drops a stitch. This is the very best kind of teamwork.
Hands in the air for Enter Shikari! 'A Flash Flood Of Colour' is a force for good.
The only negative thing I could say is that sometimes the overly politcal ramblings get a little tedious but when the musics this good who cares?
Dont do what I did and judge it too early if your not impressed initially. Give it time if you need it because otherwise you will be truly missing out.

Bought this as a present for my boyfriend.
He loves it. The CD case is made of cardboard.
Better for the environment.
