Won­der­ful Won­der­ful (Vir­gin EMI)

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s been 13 years since the Las Ve­gas band re­leased a half-bril­liant de­but al­bum, but it’s largely been one dis­ap­point­ment af­ter an­other in the wake of Hot Fuss. Their last out­ing (Bat­tle Born) was woe­ful and their artis­tic slide is only partly ar­rested on this over-pro­duced and largely vac­u­ous new al­bum. There are some strong mo­ments though, not least the syn­thy ‘Tyson v Dou­glas’ and the ti­tle track.
