With this record, Biffy officially leaves their Post-Hardcore sound (for the love of some, new fans specially, and the hate of their older ones), although there are still some traces of this sound, and a lot of experimentation (specially in the opening track "Living is a problem because everything dies").

Also some people might get reminded of the Foo Fighters with some bits of this record, although it's not my case, but a lot of people tend to compare the sound of this record with theirs.

Very energetic tracks (Living is..., Saturday Superhouse, Semi-Mental, etc.), Slower ones (As dust dances, Love has a diameter), and some interludes that eventually lead to the cathartic and somber 9/15ths. Along with Only Revolutions, for me this is the ideal album to get started with Biffy.

Best Track(s): Living is a Problem Because Everything Dies, As Dust Dances, Get fucked Stud (The last one the best)
Worst Track: Love has a Diameter (If I had to choose one)

Mixed feelings about this one. It has some great songs like Living Is a Problem Because Everything Dies, Saturday Superhouse, 9/15ths and Machines but 4-5 tracks are quite skippable. The rest of the record shows Neil's improvement in songwriting. Overall a good listen but nothing more
