I think this album opens in true DLC style with the exhilarating 'The Cure' with the simple but catchy riff that repeats throughout and Kim's beautiful emotive vocals during the uplifting chorus but there is a period through tracks 6 - 8 'Say your prayers', 'The Veil' and 'Insider' which definitely bring a more melancholy feel, something which I have never experienced with any of DLC's releases to date which is somewhat refreshing. The thing with DLC's music is the utter emotion they create with their beautiful melodies and tunes accompanied by wonderful musicians and amazing crafting of each song. I'm more than satisfied with this release and all my fears of them beginning to sound "too much like themselves" where quashed. This is different enough and they have added differences without losing their soul. I love this music, what more can i say.
A great album, but I really don't see much growth from the band. Almost every song here could have been on their previous album. I would have thought that with a new member in the band that the musical dynamics would have changed a little more. Still lots fun tunes
A very strong effort from DLC which proved to me that they can stand on their own without the gimmicks of electronic beats and enhanced vocals. This album really hits hard with punchy bass and full drum rhythms which are a treat for the ears.
