Whether Klaxons will reshape our world into a fluorescent myth-tropolis as successfully as The Strokes turned the mono-tune remains to be seen, but their debut has the anatomy necessary to change the course of a generation.

Starts off incredibly strong, with a varied palette of alt-rock tracks that feel very one-of-a-kind, but enjoyable nonetheless. But as the album wears on, the quality dips significantly.

Golden Skans 9/10
