Opening track Chaos Adores Me is a slow burning 'Mondays' style tune with some random, and lyrically weak, ramblings over the top. A piano riff keeps things plodding along with monotonous cymbal crashes emphasising every phrase possible. Overused is an understatement. It's quite well played but it's on the whole quite dull and there's not enough of a melody to really draw you in. The vocalist's voice is rather weak and to say these boys are from Glasgow there's a bit too much of a forced Mancunian twang to it. It just seems like we're treading an old path, which is no bad thing in itself, but when you have almost a carbon copy of a band, you'd much rather just go listen to the better original rather than the poor copy.
"Chorian" is a dull instrumental that sounds like it was cobled together on a ZX Spectrum whilst the remainder of the disc fails to ignite any positive feelings and recoup the damage done by the first three tracks.
Maybe I just don't do enough drugs to get it.
