    This sound really big, also really feeling those more experimenting bits. You just knew that this album would deliver a lot of bangers, but I think it will be a nicely flowing listening experience as well.

    i love the upbeats but this LP just isn't doing it for me.

    and there seems to be a disturbing lack of noisia collaborations

    I have a slight feeling that those singles were already the best tunes this LP has to offer. Not really blown away by those previews tbh, although I loved that chilled bit, Falling Into Place.

    just checked the clips, couldn't disagree more. Big Skeleton was a sick LP. really liked it for the deeper / melodic parts. It seemed like it almost had a theme + a few bangers included. I remember tho not liking it the first listen but bought, Bury Your Head, Bones, Carousel & Noises (not so much a fan of the big bangers) but it was all there. Gonna give the new lp another go but I don't think I will like it as much as I liked Big Skeleton...

    After hearing out Alone in full I have to say I became a fan. Nice deep tune. Video here:

    Nice track, but not sure about the video.

    No running people at all.
