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.
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".
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.
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.
