The 405

In both a literal and figurative sense, they're not the band they used to be - they're so much more, and for a variety of reasons (but mostly the accessibility and sheer inventiveness of it all), their new album is definitely their best yet.


Compositionally, most of this record is demonstrative of what the group do best: insistent genre-hopping, flashy displays of technical prowess, and a heavy dose of Irish excitement. 


Considering the band was all but dead in the water not so long ago, All Hail Bright Futures is a remarkable comeback record.


It's interesting but frustrating in equal measures, however it is sure to please fans who know what they're in for.

Drowned in Sound

All Hail Bright Futures withers under the glare of its own garish spotlight, and no amount of zest, pep or joviality can save it.


Highly energetic and loads of fun all the way through.
