The fourth album of the Howling Bells is quite U2-inspired at the beginning. Juanita Stein gives the female counterpart to good old Bono to the grooving Indierock, only with less ecstatic hubris. The guitars are trembling at the highest heights and the basses are grooving their way into the stomach. But it gets even better, with "Possessed", with which the Australians residing in London and Berlin make punk on garage rock. But after that the time is ripe to unpack the Dreampop, for which the Bells are known and with which they already made it into the prelude of Coldplay and Placebo.
