By Biffy Clyro
stomp, stomP, stoMP, stOMP, sTOMP, STOMP...Biffy's latest album 'Only Revolutions' then kicks in with hit single 'The Captain' opening the door for a fluster of cracking tunes to penetrate your life as the successor to 'Puzzle' hits you in the face.
The footsteps could indeed represent the marching onwards of the Ayr trio towards greater things. If 'Puzzle' was the album that opened your eyes (even if it was raped to high hell for singles and chart dominance) then 'Only Revolutions' is the stepping stone that, rather than being stood on, is heaved up and dropped on your ribcage. From the hauntingly romantic ballad 'Many of Horror' to the Marmaduke Duke-esqe 'Born on a Horse,' Biffy change things up and take you in all different directions. Previous release 'Mountains' features half way through the album as well as former top ten single 'That Golden Rule.' These songs are starting to become well known, and I much prefer the artwork on this packaging that the previous effort.
This album definitely helps cement Biffy Clyro as one of the top acts in the world. Their stage presence is astounding, their songs catchy and ever-intriguing. 'Only Revolutions' is a pit stop on their journey to world supremacy.
