This latest endeavor by Biffy Clyro is a bold attempt at making experimental somewhat friendly. When a double album initially seems like a huge task, this monolith is merely an hours worth of 20 short tracks. ‘Sounds Like Balloons’, ‘Opposite’ and ‘Biblical’ stand above the others, but the first half is otherwise less striking. The second half has the brilliant ‘Stingin’ Belle’ and some other catchy tunes but otherwise it sounds like a collection of songs that people could easily predict BC would make. Not a bad album. Good to listen to but nothing striking.
Verdict 3/5 Stars
