SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on July 10, 2006 at 2:34 pm

Sound: Their precious, piano-driven Brit pop has evolved into a harder, darker and more urgent beast with a more expansive palette, including electric pianos and synths run through guitar effects pedals to make a dense, cavernous sound.
Heavy Rotation tracks:Is It Any Wonder?icon“; “Put It Behind Youicon“; “Nothing In My Wayicon
Medium Rotation tracks:Broken Toyicon“; “Try Againicon“; “Crystal Ballicon
Recommended: Since Tom Chaplin’s voice is fuller and stronger than Chris Martin’s (Coldplay), they’ve leaped from a wussier version of Coldplay to a band capable of U2-sized rock. If they kept this new-found intensity up for the entire album, they’d really have something.
Grade: B+ (Slight chance of making my Top 20 Albums of 2006)
