Album Review

By combining elements of metal, pop, jazz, and electronica, the Cooper Temple Clause create a broad album that is subtle and meticulous as well as driving and bombastic. Songs like "The Same Mistakes" have a distinctly post-Radiohead sheen — spare, experimental arrangements, hazy, emotional vocals, and live drums that mirror programmed beats.
