If there was any doubt Architects have their eyes set on the A list, one sprint through ‘the classic symptoms of a broken spirit’ should cast that firmly aside.
With wild ambition laid out for all to see, it’s an album that runs through with propulsive immediacy. Like Bring Me The Horizon and Muse before them, the Brighton five piece are taking a go big or go home approach, each track rammed through with sky high riffs and big, synthy stabs. Will it lose some fans of their earlier material along the way? Sure. But if the gamble comes off, you’ll not see them for dust.
Potentially massive. ■ Dan Harrison
