I hate this guy's production. This is the second album this year he's ruined for me. It's a good job this album is so catchy after a few listens, otherwise the production alone would have stopped me...

I was of the same impression as the reviewer on first listen - sensory overload, leading to a quick write off of the album. The more I listened to it though, the more I realised it was the production...

They invested money in creating stores in the UK only to close them down within a year. Shame, because they showed the local Currys store a thing or two about customer service!

Where's Crummett when you need him? The production kills the mood for me.

It's a pretty catchy chorus, but the lyrics are so bad that I don't want to sing it.

If anyone's interested, Tesseract's singer Dan Tompkins has left the band. He's been replaced by Elliot Coleman, formerly of Sky Eats Airplane.

McTernan's production on this album was bloody awful.

The physical CD concept just seems really odd. 11 of the best songs? How can you even do that as a band having just created a 36 track, epic project? If I'd just created this beast I'd want people to...

From listening to the EP I didn't expect them to have one bloke just screaming. He must get pretty bored on stage, there are a lot of clean vocals.

I really like the song they've done that has Joe...

They really were awful weren't they? They looked like they'd just met each other and formed a band 5 minutes before they went on stage.
