Review Summary: A polite and clinical exercise

nye West cares about himself, about money, about pussy, religion and black people. Unfortvoice ties together the deceptively simple instrumentation, and from the opening beat of 'Hands' to the anthemic close of the title track, Running Out of Places to Go goes about its business with its feet on the table and a smile on its face. You could call it unassuming, but with this type of quality, unassuming is a sign ofside, and that is glossy, uber-melodic music with a heavyweight punch. And Chiodos certainly deliver on those fronts. The rather awkwardly titled Illuminaudio is a huge, polished affair - one bristling with a newfound, and sorely needed, energy. Any fears that new singer Brandon Bolmer would throw an unwelcome spanner in the works have been proved dramatically wrong; it might bnye West cares about himself, about money, about pussy, religion and black people.

To all attempts at a negative review of this album (yes I've taken the time to visit them all), THIS is how it should be done. It has something most of the rest lack (flair), manages to sound reasonably intelligent but not too high-horsed, and doesn't come off as a ranty-blogpost.

There. Sputnik's resident bitchslapper turned into a fanboy.

Also, I'm pretty supportive of reviews of any shape and form (especially if they're done by new users), but can this please be the last King of Limbs review? At least until all the momentum's died down? We've seriously had too many in too short a space of time.
