I have a slight headache after listening to this album. I can still feel the pound of synth bass and drums and the constant guitar loops that accompanied them.
Glamour Kings try to push aside the dance rock/electronica vibe for a few tracks but “Front Row Seat To The End Of The World” or “FRSTTEOTW” for short falls into the same repetitive pattern that the drum and bass does.
