Set It Off’s previous effort ‘Duality’ was a high-camp thrill ride that was as catchy as it was outlandish. The follow-up is a more diverse listen that carries the air of a band shooting for the stars – and the charts.
While it may not be as outrageous as its predecessor, they’re far from shrinking violets this time round. Be it the R&B infused pop-fare akin to Fall Out Boy’s most recent output on ‘Uncontainable’ or the Justin Bieber meets Lion King shtick of ‘Life Afraid’, there is a lot of fun to be had.
It will undoubtedly rub some rock purists up the wrong way, but those who give it a chance will have the best time.
