The synths are more subdued this time but at the same time provide a perfect and constant backing to layered choruses and basic but fitting drums. Murrays voice takes a huge step forward in its use, hitting highs and lows that could only be dreamed of. The girls play a fair part in the ever present choruses and flute/piano that also play throughout the album.
From start to finish it is a satisfying experience, exactly what I was looking for/hoping for. Interestingly enough, I didnt believe it to be so untill the second or third listen, when I started to pick up on the many nuances that make this now one of my favorite albums of all time.
Tracks to check out:
Ticket to Immortality
Find Our Way To Freedom

The standard of this week's show was unusually high – not one of the tracks played is at all dire.
Dolls is exactly as expected – rock and roll.
Eternal Flame is a lovely little song that does hint at something much more expansive going on within the album. Incidentally, (oh, you knew it was coming) it's Joan Wasser singing the background vocals in Redwings.
I'll consider Worry About It Later to be a good choice of single as long as Favours For Favours eventually gets released – the latter is slightly better.
Young Folks is summed up accurately by the panel (– good).
Ticket to Immortality and New Ideas were perhaps the weakest tracks played; both are fairly forgettable indie yarn.
Razorlight is intended to be a short, snappy pop album. Judging by In the Morning, I Can't Stop This Feeling I've Got, Back to the Start and the clips of other songs played on the show, it succeeds. It isn't groundbreaking; it's not really very original, but it is well-executed guitar-pop.
