I get the feeling that the record label, or the Producer, must hate the band. Maybe I'm being too harsh and they just don't understand the musical beauty and style that Hurts introduced us to on their debut album?

Either way, someone decided that layering guitars and real drums on top of the classic Hurts sound would make for a winning formula.

Instead, this album sounds like a "watered down" Hurts, almost as if "hey, let's make you sound like Coldplay" was a good idea. Sadly, it wasn't a good idea.

Yes, there's still the hint of Hurts here. The songs structures still hint that the band is still in there somewhere, but the "sound" of Hurts has been buried. Ah the heresy. It would be like telling Kraftwerk "hey guys, lets use guitars instead of synths". Some people just don't get it... and it seems that these people are now in charge of releasing Hurts albums. Shame on you!

OK, so is it all bad? Well, no, not all bad, but also not all good. There are some really good songs on here, but they sound like covers played by some britpop cover band rather than by Hurts themselves. I feel I'm forcing myself to want to like this album. But just as I almost do… I hear Coldplay playing instead.

My only hope is that those in charge of this sad state of affairs realizes their error and turns back for the next album. Come on Hurts, we know you're being held back and we'll bear with you, this time, until you get back on track next album. I hope.
