Not seen a thread about this album but it's got some love on the 2012 recommendations - just wondering people's thoughts?
I love it but have seen some mixed reviews online. Phrases like 'the new Coldplay' (bollocks) and the lazy 'ambitious step from lower league band aiming for stadiums' (which apparently is a bad thing).
I've seen these reactions crop up in some newspapers, and can't help thinking we knock such bands down for aiming high far too often. Although Muse, KoL, Coldplay et al have done a lot of work to prove the theory.
