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.

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.
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.
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.
