There’s very little progression or change in their sound, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing.

This second album finds Two Door whipping off their school ties, knotting them around their heads and inching their trainers onto the dancefloor.

Two Door Cinema Club haven’t produced a superior follow-up, it’s more like a step sideways.

Though the in-your-face dance music can overpower the emotional lyrics at times, the combination creates an oddly harmonious balance.

It's hard to see the songs of Beacon being used on quite as many BBC Three promos as its predecessor, but maybe that's a good thing.

Two Door Cinema Club traded creativity for sentimentality, and the result is tight, polished and formulaic.

With only one true standout track, a handful of fillers, and little innovation or progress, it reeks of diminishing returns from start to finish.

Mostly everything is contrived and cliché, lifted from a stock collection of guitar rock and electro rock of the past ten years.

The new sound of this album is excellent. Really appreciate the sound of the guitar, everything fits well. Definetly worth a listening.
