Top critical review
Mediocre but still decent
on 23 April 2011
Unlike their first album, this one hasn't hit the sweet spot. When one is reviewing things it's usually mandatory not to compare and contrast previous works as it will be labelled as biassed reminiscing. However in this case it's hard not to go back to This is it and wonder...what happened.
In the previous album every song felt very individual and stood out, however with this album only three songs really stand out for me; Automatic Stop, Between Love and Hate and Under Control. The rest feel like songs that were recorded for the hell of it...
It's an okay album but an album can't hold itself up on three decent songs, so if you're feeling a bit tight with money, save it.
