Battles

Gloss Drop ★★★/5

 

This album is really fun with upbeat popish and alt rock melodies that are all over the place and sometimes chaotic.  It is not easy listening and somewhat not easy to listen to, but its worth listening to.    There is tension in the music, as if some urgent message needs to be conveyed to the listener right now.  But unlike their first album this seems to have a plot, a plan, but it still manages to surprise and be unpredictable but without the, what can we do to top that feel.  It should be noted that their quirky cartoonish vocals have been replaced by steel drums.  It was a good decision.
