What sounded disappointing to me when listening the first time, grows more from every listening. It is a bit far away from the debut, because it´s on one hand more pop and on the other more indie (!?!). One sees the influence of Flood, who really did a good work, but did not alienate the band so much as he did with Editors. There is also a soccer crowd feeling for all those hymns in the middle, but there is very much sadness in the voice of James Allan, let´s say as if the Rangers go down one division. Or something even worse. And I also feel reminded to a song called "Sha La La" by South Of No North - 80s gothic from Greece - in the overall hit "The World Is Yours". I guess, this should be a conceptional album that searches for tolerance, a bit in the vein of The Smiths, but not musically. Someone described as "dream pop", but I wouldn´t compare it to such. The shoegazing kind guitars playing style in the background are more from an often used old style from Scottish folk without any devices, am I wrong? Overall this is a good album, but it is not the thing you expected. It takes getting used to.
