Two Door Cinema Club - Beacon

Sleek, polished and eminently listenable
Two Door Cinema Club - Beacon
Primed as the best of the breakthrough crop in 2010, Two Door Cinema Club’s biggest challenge was building on the promise of their debut; instead they seem to be content sticking with Plan A. Sleek, polished and eminently listenable, ‘Beacon’ deals the requisite dose of jittery guitar and solid, anthemic plays for daytime radio rotation. As a result, it’s an album that sounds as tired as the band reportedly are after a few years of hard touring and that ‘Beacon’ feels like a collection of good songs destined for TV ads and V Festival botherers’ iPods. Hard to fault but not the progress we hoped for.
