I hate it!
Simple as that really. Haven't managed to listen to a whole track yet. Palace,their debut, was simply sublime,this is the worst kind of synth pop imaginable. Why the massive departure from the style of the first album I don't know. On first listen I had to check the disc was actually by Chapel Club, it is that different! I know some readers will say bands have to evolve to mature and develop their style, but this is SO different from what I loved about their debut never has the phrase "from the sublime to the ridiculous", been more apt.
There was so much more maturity on the first album. One suspects outside influence, at least I hope so!
Just so very, very, disappointed.
