From the chaotic opening of ‘Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space’ to the surprisingly slow-paced stagger of ‘Revival Mode’, this is a deafening, destructive and devilishly diverse affair, serving as a firm and timely reminder that when it comes to this particular game, nobody does it quite like this.
