Ten years ago, just after their first success which made them known to a large public, Twin Atlantic had opted to transform their music from a more interesting base (more punk) to generic (more pop and more alternative) to cover and respond to the commercial aspect without really having the shoulders. Today the band is back with an album that looks strangely similar to the 3 previous ones.

Overproduced and overblown to the nth degree, it’s clear that the bands’ ambition outreached their abilities. But they definitely met the album title head on, as they did undeniably give it their all on this thing, even if the results aren’t stellar.

Standout: Oh! Euphoria!
Favs: uhhh none tbh
Least fav: Messiah
This is classic case of one step forward (GLA) and two steps back to being an average, plain album.
It's not bad per se, Novocaine to me was their standout; but their calibre can be utilised far better and can create memorable music in past albums. POWER won't have that replay value if you compare it to their previous album GLA.
Back to the drawing board for Twin Atlantic.
Okay, where do I start now? This is such a lazy record, the production, musical arrangement should be way better. It seems they recorded everything in just one week, this is like unfinished product.
