Better than the original, or is it?

Second album from Chvrches offers more big number neo-synth pop and exciting electro thrash with killer pop undertones. Very accessible but also still down to earth. The electronics never overshadow but instead enhance the very appealing vocals. Key tracks are "Leave a trace", "Empty threat" and "Never ending circles" but can't really think of many fillers on this album. "Clearest blue" is fun when it erupts what sounds like a sonic update of the Mode's "Just can't get enough". How it should be, not afraid to take inspiration from the past but not being shackled by it. Great album.
