I don't think anyone's topped their debut with a similar sound.
Its so good. I've just stuck it on for the first time in a while, and realised how it still sounds as good as it did when I first stuck it on. The recording of it is superb, how the drums are quiet and there's a kind of... sepia tone to it. I know that sounds horrible, but it sounds like its been recorded with really old equipment. How the guitars are all bitey and like Gang of Four.
Do you think they can go anywhere though, with their third record? Their second was good, but it didn't have the same appeal to the first. It didn't seem to have the style or charisma the first one stank of. A bit more 'rock'.
