Biffy Clyro – Opposites

Up until this point it has been hard to pin these three guys down sonically. Maybe they feel sorry for us and have changed that up on Opposites. Scottish trio Biffy Clro comes right at you with their sixth album. They are obviously aiming for a breakthrough in North America with this one. Come into it expecting less hipster and more rock. Though the final track is an acoustic one called “Pocket” and is very poppy and very catchy.  The other tracks feature soaring guitars along with the anthemic choruses. Basically they have evolved from an alternative rock band into a pop rock act. Lyrically the songs are all very heartfelt and well constructed. Listening to these fifteen songs you begin to wonder why other bands cannot make intelligent pop music.
