What do you think of this album? I didn't like it that much since it didn't have the same dark and melancholic sound that TOBTL did.
I get why they are compared to Joy Division due to the similarity of the vocals. Never got how they similar to the Chameleons.
Lmao you're talking out of your ass. They sound nothing like Joy Division. Their bass isn't as minimal and they feature a lot of dual guitar work. They also sound nothing like The Chameleons, who had a strong dream pop sound. TOTBL focus a lot on atmosphere, but that's it. You'd have a case if you said they sound like My Dad Is Dead, and even then it's just the vocals.
More rockier than the debut with less focus on atmosphere. It's fine as a collection of songs, but as an album it doesn't flow as well. Still pretty good, it has some of their best tracks.
I love that album so much, TOBL is perfect but Antics is close to me.
Next Exit is a hell of an opener and Not Even Jail is my favorite song by them I think.
