If you like this kind of music it's a good effort from Greg and Nick. After listening to the singles released earlier I was expecting something more, but that's ok. Still good.

This sounds very like Host album meeting with a watered-down version of One Second. While it's nothing impressive, it's not bad at all.

Reminds me of Depeche Mode at times. It's not nearly as good but I enjoyed it.

I never liked the album Host, and I don't find this one interesting either. It has the sound that I should enjoy, but I don't. The cover of "I ran" sounds boring to me, and I love the original song; it's been my ringtone for the last couple of years or something.

I am so glad this doesn't have the Paradise Lost name on it.

I agree, after I think second single I thought I will like it but start to listen to this all went to the cat shit sand box. I never like Paradise Lost ''disco'' era albums , never will, same goes here. Good they did not ruined it again. Not sure what Gregor is smoking, but I have a feeling this is not their last album.

I like A Flock of Seagulls, in their original line-up, they had a really good guitarist, once he left, it all went downhill.

Now you are just trolling with the "disco' era... When and how? You don't have to constantly repeat ad nauseam you dislike this, everyone understood the first time...

They are obviously trying to make money without disturbing the lost crowds they had to regain after Host was released.
As far as music...it is the music equivalent of the Kardashian wearing Slayer t-shirt. Just DON'T! )

How dare try something different! Or get back to creating a sound they enjoyed. The insolence of these two musicians!

They should have released this under Paradise Lost and the album be called Host Part 2, just to see how many people would lose their cool...

Loved it hahahah

Seriously now, one more reason to respect Paradise Lost, unlike many other big bands out there: Instead of changing completely direction and creating music that is 90% different that their "original" while keeping their "big-band-name" and alienaning fans, they just created a new band to accompany their new direction.

Wish more bands did that.
