So Give Me a Wall was a storming debut album, full of spiky guitar riffs, stop-start drumming, and Tom's strange trippy sounding lyrics and many people feel that this second album doesnt capture the energy in the same way. I have to say that I almost agree with them....

However after a few listens, I feel that this album actually does captures the power and agression of the first album, it just refines it and releases it in a completely different way.

With this album the band explores their more experimental side, and instead of the tracks attacking from the start, these tracks unwind and coil themselves up, before attacking in huge waves of epic sound.

The standout tracks for me are Spring is a Condition, Some Buildings (which seems to build and build for ages before a riff that wont fail to put a smile on the listeners face, kicks in), & my favourite track which is Gravity & Heat.

It's an assured second album, with the band now seemingly finding a sound that's their own. Epic in the best possible way.

Often mistaken for a band that have failed to impress the mainstream industry of unique indie-rock, Forward Russia's sheer determination to remain in the deep, dark depths of the indie underground scene shines through significantly more here than 2006 debut 'Give Me Wall'. The structures are more random, the lyrics more philosophically obscure, the experience is altogether more riotous, but whilst this may agravate fans hooked on the last efforts catchy tunes and casual arrangements, this is a solid, effortless progression for the leeds' act which avoids repetition but also serves as a reminder that Forward Russia could have achieved so much more commercially.

Forward Russia follow up their immense first album with a solid album which sees them tone down their distinctive noise slightly, possibly to have their album to be more widely accepted.

The sharp guitar riffs still exist , as do the excellent drums but very rarely does Tom scream in the way that dominated in the first album. "Bring Me A Wall" excelled in bringing euphoric choruses from an ocean of noise and it is these choruses that FR have built "Life Processes" on.

If you like the first album for its obscure time signatures, epic guitar and drums and generally wild air, this toned down second album may disappoint. Having seen FR live when promoting "Give Me A Wall", I can't imagine Tom's crazy on-stage antics going along with these new songs.

Listen to "Don't Reinvent What You Don't Understand" for old school FR and the new single "Breaking Standing" for an example of their new direction. Best song for me is "A Prospector Can Dream".

I really wanted to like this album after being really impressed by 'Give Me A Wall'. The whole thing comes across as just watered down though. There's nothing like the amount of catchy songwriting here- as the other reviewers have said, the best song is probably 'Prospector', which harks back to their earlier stuff. That's not to say an album has to be singalong to be good, but it was one of this bands strongpoints.
Combined with that, the vocals are now deeply irritating on several of the songs, having taken on a warbly, operatic falsetto which quickly wears thin. Technically impressive singing it might be but I was cringing.
In short, this seems to be a idea free poor cousin of the first album rather than a step forward and I can't recommend it.

Tricky second album - such a stereotype, almost every band succumbs to this. ¡Forward, Russia! are one of the few who haven't. The incredible guitar riffs, bouncing electro, pounding drums, borderline-incomprehensible lyrics and anguished yelping that defined ¡FR!s first album are back, but refined better than ever.

The songs now feel more cohesive, and the lyrics, while still poetic to the point of surreality ("I've got a landmine attached to my leg, with eyeballs turned into my head: the failure of the superego doesn't look that comfortable"), never get to the point of weird for the sake of weird. Probably the best song is A Prospector Can Dream, a blistering anthem with a catchy chorus, but every song, from opener "Welcome to the Moment (The Rest of Your Life)" (an intense rock-out which ''opens'' with the chorus) to closer "Spanish Triangles" (a delicate 9-minute ballad about sailing) are incredible. A must have album for anyone who appreciated Give Me A Wall.
