ALARM BELLS

Part Two Bat­tle World­wide

Blunt - - In Review -

And so the pe­cu­liar story of Alarm Bells continues – with ev­ery Part One, there nat­u­rally comes a Part Two. The en­ergy and un­pre­dictabil­ity of its pre­de­ces­sor is con­tin­ued here, al­though the over­all de­meanour is some­what lighter and more sprightly in na­ture. Hell, “Must Be Some­thing I Took” could have been a long-lost Dananananaykroyd sin­gle – and that is in no way an in­sult. Al­though each of the four tracks on of­fer here are fan­tas­tic, it’s in the closer “Come” where busi­ness re­ally be­gins to pick up. The spiky gui­tar picks up on some of the band’s math­ier in­flu­ences, while a mid-song de­tour into re­verbladen syn­the­siser coun­try tips it over the line to beat Part One’s “Whitemare” as their best track to date. Parts three through in­fin­ity can­not come quickly enough. Sound the alarm.
