Every now and again, an album hits the sweet spot between sounding commercial and radio friendly but also has the personality of a more indie release. Through well crafted songs and a big sounding production, White Lies may have created an album that sees them reach an even bigger audience. From the funky bass lines in the opening track Am I Really Going To Die? to the rock-infused Roll December, there is a scale to the sound.

The three-piece have assembled a fine and coherent collection of tunes that have the hooks to turn them into ear-worms; it might be old-fashioned to listen to whole albums in original track order but this album deserves such attention.
