After seeing these guys live a couple of weeks back has really validated my opinion on this record: it's very average, definitely their worst.



While the majority if the set contained a collection of all their singles from the past few years, songs like "The Thaw" and "Spanish Radio" were, while not inherently bad, just boring to listen to. Especially when they play a banger like "A Day Of..." which was the surprise mosh of the night.

Well written review except you didn't mention the other great track on it 'Different People'?!?!?! This has to be one of the best Biffy songs in existence!?!?!

Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro go large on their Garth Richardson produced 6th LP 'Opposites'. A conceptual double album filled with anthemic sing-alongs, this release is flawed but ultimately satisfying. Simon Neil's brogue & wacky lyrics return; riffs move from crunchy to angular; the rhythm section from funky to hard-hitting & there's many a twist thrown in. It's overlong at 78 minutes, but there's surprisingly little filler here. While their discography suggests they are capable of more technicality, this LP still proves that the trio are quirkier & more dynamic than their peers. Recommended Tracks: Sounds Like Balloons, Biblical, Stingin' Belle & Spanish Radio.

Nah, Accident Without Emergency is the best song and it's not on the 14-track edition.

Had to take this 0.5 down now. But still looking forward to seeing them this November, now that "57" has become part of their setlist!

Biffy Clyro frontman Simon Neil has said that the band have 20 songs - which are all 80% written - for their next album.



However, in a new interview with Q, Neil explained that the follow-up to 2013's double LP 'Opposites' might only have ten tracks when it is completed.



"It's sounding really rocking at the moment. I think it's important to put some more rules and limitations on what we do because on the last few records we ran with whatever ideas we had," he said. "So on this one, when I say stripped back it's not going to sound skeletal or anything but perhaps a bit more aggressive. Coming off the back of a double album, it's important to be really concise so we might only have ten songs."
