Not as expected

Is this really the same album all the music reviewers are giving 8 and 9 out of 10 ? Feel a bit letdown - average at best.

Fantastic 2nd Album

After what seems like having their debut album in repeat for the past 2 years I was of course keen to hear their new album - lay back and listen to this masterpiece in your headphones you will not be disappointed!

4 brilliant songs does not an album make

Still, the immense dissapointment aside, it’s not a bad album, and the Villagers are one brilliantly talented band: let's hope the 3rd album is back up to the Jackal standards.
