For me it harks back to The Sound of Lies, which is one of my favourite records and I feel this is going to be also. Outstanding tracks are hard to chose when everything is this good but I will go with ‘Everybody Knows’, ‘Backwards Women’ and ‘Need you tonight’ as a starter. That said there really is not a lack lustre song here and the mood and pace is varied to be able to cater for the broad church of their fan base. This is a record I completely and utterly recommend.
