Such a good album, Warm Smiles is easily the best song they have ever made. No skippable songs, either.

I'm surprised Enter Shikari get hated on as much as they do on here. They don't deserve to be lumped with bands like The Devil Wears Prada and are far from "shit". Calling a band shit should be saved for bands who genuinely are, such as Brokencyde.rAlbum rules, though it has certain flaws in it, such as Pack Of Thieves' transition from huge chorus to electronic drop, it doesn't fit at all.
Rating change: Bumped this down from 4 to 3.5, Enter Shikari's albums as a full package seem to be very weak in the case of lasting value. Whilst the songs are good, the album just doesn't strike me enough as a whole to come and back and listen to over and over again.

Their best album. Surprisingly restrained in moments, while still retaining their spastic sense of humor.

With a disjointed structure, overemphasis on their political views and the garbled electronics, Enter Shikari has made an album that doesn't stand up to the original sound on their last two albums and instead changes their formula to experiment and convey ideas, with very mediocre results.

This is getting really good reviews all over the place, but honestly it's just average. It's not even as good as their last album, and the attempted dubstep parts are annoying. The production is pretty bad too. Like it sounds like they only recorded one guitar track. I mean who the hell records only one guitar track in this day and age?

This crossover style Enter Shikari have going for them should not work the way it does; at first glance, you'd think the overall direction this post-hardcore band took on A Flash Flood of Colour would be nothing but severe foolishness on their part. Instead, however, the various sounds of dubstep, British hip hop, techno, rap rock, and anything remotely similar clogged inside the toilet of ES' primary genre results in unexpected consistency and some amount of delightful morting above all else.

This album is amazing. Creativity, variety, a message. I mean come on what more do you want. Many haters on Sputnik that hate this band for some reason, but who gives a fuck you know this album sounds great.

Every time I listen to the metal part of Warm Smiles (3:00 - 3:48), I enter Shikari. Fucking amazing!

Slowly going off this band and their album ratings are dropping accordingly.

After the effortless melding of genres displayed on new album "The Mindsweep," this album's hackneyed shoehorning of electronica and metalcore is painfully unsatisfying, and the politically fueled spoken words sections are cheesy and far too numerous. The transitions between these three elements are as subtle as a bag of bricks being thrown down a flight of stairs. By far the low point in ES's discography, and thank fuck they recovered from this mess.
|4.5 superb||merize9 | October 14th 14|
Amazing album! My style of music, rock, dance, screamo, a little rap, loud beat, great voice and lyrics.
|4.5 superb||Ryan Hoffman | August 9th 13|
The best mix of metalcore and dubstep yet produced, with some of the best political lyrics this side of RATM. Also has a major prog edge to the songwriting structure.
|1.5 very poor||Rob Marais | February 20th 13|
I understand that stylistic progression is good for a band; it stops their music becoming stale and allows them to experiment with other genres. One thing I don't get, however, is bands who tone down to the point of irrelevance everything that made their music good, and pump up the smaller, less popular aspects of their back catalogue. Gone are the shrieks and snarls from Take To The Skies , gone are the melodic, well balanced periods of clean vocals and gone is the thoroughly post-hardcore instrumentalism. Here, Enter Shikari are nothing but a heavily dubstep influenced shadow of their former selves. Reynolds was seemingly so consumed in putting forward a throughly anti-state message that he forgot to write some good music with which he could carry his point forward.

This was one of the first times I'd heard a post-hardcore album. And I'm glad it was this one, because it drew me in during every second.rFrom the acoustic-to-electronic balladry of 'Stalemate' to the political-rant-turned-dubstep 'Gandhi Mate, Gandhi' to the spoken-word 'Constellations', the album absolutely captivated me. I loved the mix of genres, I loved it when it was at its slowest and when it was at its white-knuckled rampage pace.rIt's a brilliant fusing of electronica and metal, and I can't wait to check out their other stuff after this.
|3.5 great||Rafael Moreira | June 6th 12|
Finally, there is something plain positive to say about these guys. Energetic, full of momentum, unique and a great message as always, perhaps even more polished. An amazing, solid fusion between post-hardcore and electronic genres. Enter Shikari at their best.

It's a great album. It's not excellent and it's definitely not classic. Common Dreads came out years ago and I'm less 'over it' than AFFOC. There is a certain element lacking in a lot of the songs, The album dosen't flow, like Common Dreads and Take to the Skies did and little things like the end of Sssnakepit just bring it all down to the score it deserves.r-Coming from a huge fan.
|4.0 excellent||BroManCaptainGuySirDylan | January 18th 12|
At first I was skeptical of this album, due to the lack of the once promised 'Destabilise' and 'Quelle Surprise', both of which are fantastic songs. But as it turns out, this record is innovative, meaningful and above all, a lot of fun. No filler and not one skippable track. Even my once hated 'Gandhi Mate, Gandhi' works well within the context of the album, and 'Warm Smiles Do Not Make You Welcome Here' might be my favourite ever Enter Shikari song.
|3.5 great||alextheantichrist | January 17th 12|
Enter Shikari seem to be evolving into a successful band and A Flash Flood of Colour is their best album yet. It's more balanced with the Post-Hardcore and the Electronica. One of my favorite tracks on here is Constellations which is definitely an amazing way to end an album. Give this a chance.

Not as bad as I thought it'd be. Few songs are good, few songs are decent. I'll probably end up listening to the whole record once/twice every month or so.

Might be better than their previous two albums. At least better than common dreads. But then again, it's like comparing three different competitors in the special olympics.
