Album Review

Biffy Clyro's 2013 album, Opposites, is the band's sixth studio effort and follows up the band's hugely successful 2009 Mercury Prize-nominated release, Only Revolutions. Whether appreciated as a double- or single-disc album (the band released both versions), Opposites is a sprawling, ambitious work that once again finds the Scottish rock trio balancing its prog rock inclinations with its undeniable talent for mainstream, radio-ready pop. In that sense, Biffy Clyro are certainly one of the most album-oriented, '70s-style rock acts of their generation — though their sound is hardly retro. On the contrary, with lead singer/guitarist Simon Neil belting in a thick brogue over the band's knotty, metal-influenced arrangements, Biffy Clyro come off more like a Scottish version of Fugazi than, say, a classic rock band like Rush, although there is a twinge of nerd-rock power here, too. There is something very concept album-esque about Biffy Clyro's Opposites, especially when taken in the entire two-disc format. It's very laser light show-friendly, as many of the songs here are heavy with loud guitars, frenetic drumming, and intricate, multi-layered arrangements. Primarily, however, the album rides on the kind of anthemic, crowd-pleasing pop songs that made Only Revolutions such a success. Where last time we got the melodic bombast of "Mountains" and "Many of Horror," here we get the equally as wide-eyed "Sounds Like Balloons" and the romantic, soundtrack-ready "Biblical." Ultimately, Biffy Clyro's gift as a band is to craft songs that balance immediately catchy hooks with complex arrangements that only help to reinforce the drama of the pop moment. Thankfully, there are plenty of these dichotomous yet rapturous moments on Opposites. [The album in the Deluxe Edition comprises two discs, the ten-track The Sand at the Core of Our Bones and the ten-track The Land at the End of Our Toes, and adds a bonus making-of-the-album DVD.]

Customer Reviews


Es gibt wenig Alben, die man wochenlang durchhören kann, ohne dass es einem langweilig wird oder aus dem Hals hängt.
Dieses Album ist so eines, was man in Dauerschleife hören kann.
Mag sein, dass Biffy Clyro über die Jahre eingängiger geworden sind. Aber die Songs sind immer noch großartig. Mit Mainstream hat es hier nichts zu tun.
Viele Bands die radiotauglicher geworden sind, sind zugleich auch schlecht geworden. Biffy Clyro jedoch nicht. Alle Songs sind große Kunst, in jedem Song steckt etwas ganz Besonderes, zum Teil Magisches, verschiedene Genre fliessen hier ein und es gibt für jeden etwas zum Staunen.
meine Songempfehlung: Opposite, Stingin' Belle, Skylight, A Girl and His Cat.


Das neue Album Opposites ist fantastisch. Voller Überraschungen, neuer Sounds und auch typischer Biffy Klänge. Ich würde mal sagen: besser geht´s nicht!

What the….


Geniales Album von A-Z, von oben bis unten. Unfassbar starke Leistung - Biffy Clyro, spätestens jetzt kein Geheimtipp mehr!!

Assembling in the late '90s, in the town of Kilmarnock, near Glasgow, Scotland, Biffy Clyro featured a three-piece lineup, fronted by vocalist and guitarist Simon Neil along with James Johnston (bass) and drummer Ben Johnston. Playing loud combinations of pop/rock, inspired by the music of bands like Weezer, Biffy Clyro first started by playing their aggressive pop tunes in the nearby Glasgow club scene, eventually enjoying a stable and enthusiastic response from their audiences.
