Customer Review

on 16 March 2014
This isn't a bad album, but to me, these tracks don't have the emotive quality of those on their past albums. I feel like the band are more apt with their guitars than they are with synths, and you can see that in the great melodic lines in songs like Empty Nest (from two dancers) and End Come Too Soon (from Smother). This album doesn't seem to have that loose, imaginative feel that I loved from their past albums.

For this reason, tracks like Sweet Spot are real standouts, and tracks like 'Palace' or 'Wonder Boy' are good, but don't reach the heights of tracks that have made me consider Wild Beasts to be one of my favourite bands. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's necessarily the instrumentation that's the problem- I just think that maybe the powerful synth sounds take a bit more priority over creating inventive and emotive melodies
