I had enjoyed the debut album by Battles back in 07' after reading a favourable review in Uncut magazine and after I discovered that this, only their second album, had been recently released I was eager to sample its  aural eccentricities. This new album of experimental quirky indie pop numbers doesn't disappoint and I am thoroughly enjoying the excellent creativity of the mostly instrumental music conceived by this talented and wonderful band. All sorts of music have been incorporated into these ditties to coalesce into a unique sound. Most enjoyable. Rating 4/5
