The overwhelming feeling is one of carefully controlled chaos. They throw their curveballs with glee, such as Welcome To The Next Level Above Human – a techno-rock sugar rush of a track that would make Electric Callboy seem tame – and almost crunkcore interlude Burn Again, which falls just about on the right side of batshit. Yet there’s also a sense of gentleness with the silvery, synthy pop ballads Decades and World Domination, which is intriguing but maybe not quite as memorable as when they’re on their home turf. However, where they do nail balladry is the warm, intimate acoustic number Losing Faith, which moves from denial to heartbreak with gut-punching effect.
It's impressive that an album with this many songs crammed into its tracklist can be this thrilling, and remain quite so consistent. There is a sense listening to it, however, that Blood Command knew they were always capable of it.
