***** They have done very well here. Following up two very solid albums in 'Beams' and 'Apocalypso' was always going to be a tough ask (especially when their break since the latter has been double the amount of time that was initially thought). While it doesn't eclipse either of those in overall quality, I think they have done well to differentiate it from them by offering something very different. Most of the album is of a high quality, I really was surprised by this.
*** I hate to be a bandwagon follower, but "Apocalypso" really is going to remain my album of choice. Unfortunately this doesn't come close to the brilliance of that. That's not to say that this doesn't have its moments, but it doesn't entirely work for me. 3.3
