Editors’ Notes

This Hertfordshire, England–based post-hardcore quartet keeps lashing out with upstart fervor in its third studio album, A Flash Flood of Colour. “System . . .” opens the album with a call to fight for the future. This is continued in “. . . Meltdown”, where Rou Reynolds yells “This is going to change everything!” before the song erupts with skittering beats, chaotic industrial noise, and a clash between distorted keyboards and rumbling bass. Over all this, Reynolds rails against the U.K.'s failing economic system with more bite in his voice than on previous recordings. “Arguing with Thermometers” takes the Korn approach of fusing screamo with hard dubstep—though here a bouncing britpop guitar follows the singing melody. “Stalemate” features acoustic guitar, subtle rhythms, and softened vocal harmonies musing heavily on the unfair distribution of wealth and war in the East; it's a relevant addition to the protest-song canon.

Customer Reviews

Wow!

Shikari have done it again. This album has it all agression, passion even beauty. Smashing music genres since 2003. Takes you on an amazing story. Thank you Rou and all of Shikari for making real amazing music as iv grown up, Cant wait for March!

Disapointed

Musically this album easily outranks their previous stuff but lyrically it's a letdown. Every song is about the same thing! I can handle it in one song but an album? I listen to music to escape from life's problems not have Rou's political opinion shoved down my throat! Where's the variety?
