It's pretty inconsistent as an album, but the best songs here are too good. Whorses and That Golden Rule live are stunners.

Album of the day! Woo! Mon the Biff!

Like many others this was my first entry into the world of the Biff. 2009 seems ages ago now. Being brutally honest, this is a good rock album but not much else. I read a recent article in which the band ranked this album their second best. No, just no. This does not stack up against their first trilogy at all but like I said there are some standout tracks: That Golden Rule, Boom Blast, Bubbles, Mountains and Whorses (which is probably better live). But there are some uncharacteristically bland tracks: Shock Shock, Know Your Quarry and Many of Horror (which is the only Biffy song which I actively hate, not just because of the X Factor but because it has the cheesiest lyrics Simon has ever committed to the studio).

Overall, I'd put this as my fifth favourite Biffy album. It still has the unmistakably weirdness that only Biffy can project but they lost their razor sharpe edge by going mainstream. I don't blame them to be honest, I just hope they get the edge back now that they've 'made it.'

This is the record that sent Biffy to the mainstream... (Puzzle already did this though, but this is the one that did it on a new level). For a lot of people this more commercial sound was a bad change, but in my opinion it gave place to some of Biffy's greatest tracks.

In this record there are mixes of more mainstream oriented tracks (The Captain, Bubbles, Mountains), More slow songs (God & Satan, Many of Horror, Know your Quarry), More experimentation and flirting with new styles (Born on a horse) and of course some aggressive songs (That golden rule, Shock Shock) even though there are no traces of the Post-Hardcore style that identified them in their first three records. If you're planning to give Biffy a listen, this may just be the ideal record to get into them.

Best Track(s): That Golden Rule, Booooom. Blast & Ruin
Worst Track: Shock Shock

This is a very satisfying and consistent album, however not Biffy's best.

I thought this album was good. It had a message (believe what you want, think for yourself), it has great guitars, its loud and its exciting. I think of it as post-Lost Prophets.
