iTunes Review

Fusing punk aggression and prog-rock ambition, Scottish trio Biffy Clyro continue their decade-long creative ascent on the spiky and surprising Only Revolutions. This time, frontman Simon Neil’s songs are framed with jagged guitar riffage, pummeling rhythms and deft sting and brass arrangements. The tunes here are sometimes belligerent, often paradoxical and filled with palpable longing, both erotic and spiritual. If Biffy Clyro isn’t coming from a happy place, they nevertheless infuse tracks like “Born On a Horse,” “That Golden Rule” and “Boooom, Blast & Run” with blistering drive and a jittery sense of fun. Though the album’s songs are more compact than much of the band’s previous output, the complex “Bubbles” and the brooding “Cloud of Stink” are tinged with distinctly progressive colors. The relatively subdued “Know Your Quarry” and “Mountains” are no less compelling than hard-charging numbers like “Boooom, Blast and Ruin.” Only Revolutions manages to be a hook-laden, consistently engaging effort without sacrificing the band’s essentially dark vision or visceral bite.

Customer Reviews

Remember when Rock was Real?

One of the best Rock records I have heard in a LONG time! No make up, no tight pants, no trends. Just three guys that can really play. Great melodies, and lots of power! If you enjoy Bands like Foo Fighters, Muse and Hundred Reasons. Then you will LOVE this band!

Finally!

I read the review of this album a few months ago in a British magazine and have been going insane for three months waiting for it and NOW IT IS HERE. This is an incredible album full of catchy hooks and powerful guitar. For new fans I would reccomend starting with their previous album Puzzle as it is a little bit better but this is an amazing album.

Really Good Album

The Captain has become my new favorite song.
