It still reeks of cheese, but will most likely propel the band to even further heights...

While their debut ‘The Way Of The Fist’ was generally dismissed upon release as a gimmick-ridden fan-pleaser so transparent it wouldn’t recognise itself on an HMV rack, FFDP have been confounding the disbelievers with a sharp rise in popularity and album sales, not to mention delivering on the live circuit. Their sophomore though, albeit similar in design, is a superior proposition with greater ambition and a steadfast attention on the hot and cold, fast and slow approach of their debut, mixing up proceedings to a fine balance. It still reeks of cheese, but will most likely propel the band to even further heights.
