Flash in the pan?

Hands up who remembers the Klaxons? You do!? Seriously? OK, well they've spent the past fourteen years working on the follow-up to the Mercury-winning Myths of The Near Future and finally the first fruits of their intensive labour have found their way onto the interpipe.

This is 'Flashover':

So, what do you reckon? Was it worth the wait? Certainly you can hear producer Ross Robinson's influence, especially in the guitar heavy first few minutes. The odd piano interlude is a bit cringe worthy and despite the lack of cheap synths and the general desire to leave the whole 'nu rave' thing behind, it's not all that different. It's also a bit, you know, dull...

  1. I agree. I can't really see the difference.
    It's not a bad song, it's just nothing new.
