This was a surprisingly consistent and fun Cure-style poppy post-punk album. Not a bad song on it, though there's no song that comes anywhere close to their prior hits like Cardiac Arrest & Daft Pretty Boys, or even greater deeper cuts. It's an album where not a single song gets below a 7/10 from me, but only one song (The World And I) gets above a 8.

Best Tracks: The World And I, One Magic Moment, Away We Go, Starjumper

It's not quite as funky or fun and that's a shame. It does have a couple of highlights, but even those don't quite match the infectiousness of the choruses, ... read more
