☆½ ~ Exiguous and quite unsteady listen. Not my thing.
El perfecto "Most Underrated record of the year". Este disco no esta hecho para ser digerido por cualquiera, aún así vemos la hermosa tonalidad de sonidos que nos presentan, 100% Indie Estadounidense. La única bestialidad es "Magic Mountain" que por mas oportunidades que se le da, tiene un coro no muy armonioso que digamos.
Best Tracks: Kiss Me again, There Is Nothing Left , Face of God y I Cant Pretend.
--> 90/100.
Probably my favourite pop record of the year.
Well-refined music, great variety of sounds, beautiful combinations of synths and Jonny's voice always on top. I can't really understand all the low scores I saw since day one.
I give it an 85/100, it's good, it's interesting.
The various low reviews are just people who are just not cut out for appreciating this music,… yet.
