Product description

Product Description

October 14th (2016) sees Two Door Cinema Club return with Gameshow, their first album since 'Beacon' in 2012.

Gameshow incorporates a wide and varied range of styles and influences that perfectly marries the band's pop sensibilities and hooks, with a continued sonic invention. It's a real statement of intent, introducing their dedicated fan base to Two Door v2.0 - it's a sound that's ambitious, but never alienating - off-kilter, but always danceable.

Like others have said this is a big shift in direction for them. It took a good 3 or 4 listens to make my mind up but I do love this album. There's only 1 track that I'm not too keen on but the rest of it is spot on for me. I have been listening to it on repeat for days now. My favourites have to be Gameshow, Lavender and Gasoline :)

They didn't want to feel tied to the music they used to make and I suggest you don't either. Lyrically, I find this album their strongest yet; the band are honest and questioning without trying to sound prolific. They treat their philosophy sensitively and present it with an acute series of well-programmed and well-conceived instrumentation. If they hadn't changed, people would complain that nothing new was happening in the studio. Two Door Cinema Club ARE back, just don't expect another What You Know. Sure, it takes a couple of listens to get used to, but isn't that the beauty of music?

So, it's always a bit of a shock when a band you love take a new direction - especially if it's a stark change and into territory you really don't like. So, I get some of the negativity around this. And only a week or so a go I was feeling the same about the Kaisers. But I love this version of Two Door. I think they've really pulled it off. You can still tell it's them, for starters. And while there's a lot of falsetto, it's great. Love Gameshow and Surgery in particular. A really strong album - but a huge disappointment if you don't like this kind of pop.

I am a huge fan of TDCC and their very distinctive sound. The first album was sublime, the second patchy, but still had a couple of great singles. But this latest offering is just plain awful. Apart from the first track 'Are We Ready' (Wreck), which has that unmistakable catchy sound and the passable title track, the rest is just plain turgid. And as for those terrible falsetto vocals, do we really need a rerun of the risible Bee Gees disco dreck from the 1980s; or at other times a poor imitation of the passé Scissor Sisters?

It's unbelievable that Gameshow was four years in the making. Granted that bands need to change their sound/image to progress and keep up with the competition, but these woeful songs do not do the band justice and I look forward to a return to form with their next CD.

Allegedly at the finish of the last album the band members ended hating each other; on this offering it sounds like they hated making decent music together again too.

After three years passing, including an extended hiatus during this time, Northern Ireland’s indie-band Two Door Cinema Club have returned with a much-anticipated third studio album. 'GameShow' marks a charge in direction, certainly the most mainstream effort, which some fans may not care for, but this Prince and Bowie influenced record is rather hard to resist in places. I admit that it took a while for me to make up my mind whether I liked the new sound myself, but can now safely say that I think this is a good album, but highly unlikely to win me over as much as their previous offerings have.

Here we have a vibrant, dance-indie-pop record with bombastic guitar riffs which were invented in the 80s', and stylish special effects which really do convey the feeling that you're watching a television game show, but alas, I found some of the songs, and their all-too-similar sound to grow rather tiresome after a short while. My personal favourite track is the catchy, radio-friendly lead single 'Are We Ready', a throwback to the band's early days which opens their new album up, and is by far the most playable. Other worthwhile songs include the title track, 'Ordinary', 'Fever', and the rather brilliant ballad 'Invincible'.

If you love enjoy and 80s' pop music, then the Scissor Sisters-isque 'GameShow' will no doubt blow you're mind, but if you don't, then you might just want to stick with Two Door Cinema Club's first two, and ultimately far superior albums. Personally, I believe these three men are much better than this, although they were clearly having a blast whilst recording it. Good, but certainly not great, though ultimately, a creative high. 3.5 stars.

What the hell happened.....I got to song four on this album and couldn't bear another note. It is truly woeful, actually hurt my ears. And from a band that I have a lot of time for. Before you say, "Oh how can you review it then etc etc" Well I guess I just can, and I have. Its not going to get any better for me, trust me. Its comparable to drinking a really awful bottle of wine. If it tastes foul on first sip, ditch the bottle and move on.
I was really keen to go and see them on their latest tour as I have always wanted to see them live. Forget that, I'd rather sit in a room and listen to babies crying. Sorry lads, you have messed up here big time.

Well, I loved their first album and actually I thought their second an even better, more mature sort of effort. Grew to become a staple album in my collection. This release, after a four year wait, is utter garbage. Annoying falsetto drenched disco pap. What happened?

I did not know who the band was and gave it a try after hearing a track from the new album on the radio. I absolutely love it. It is a bit of a retro sound but good solid tracks and mostly upbeat to listen to.
