iTunes Review

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


The breakdown on ...Meltdown made me punch my cat in the face. He asked me why i punched him, and i let him listen to this song. I can now say i have been punched in the face by a cat.

No other band alike

Just simply amazing, the only band changing the everyday sound of their genre. Whatever the hell their genre may be.


This is one of the most refreshing albums I've heard in what feels like ages. Being a huge fan of smooth jazz to extreme brutal death metal, electronic, acoustic and progressive music I like to think I know a fair bit about music. Incredibly catchy, delicate and beautiful music that has some fairly heavy parts, nice technique and originality all in a beautiful package. A wonderful album. Get it. You won't regret it.
