The Leeds quintet claim 'We Met at Sea' was a new chapter and direction change for them more in keeping with their reputation as a "notable live act". Openers 'Animal' and 'I Won't Come Back' are, however, typically the Pigeon Detectives of old, and the first track which signals a change of direction is 'Light Me Up' which I found a bit irritating in the same way as I found Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' was. I doubt they will mind if it achieves the same public reaction though.
The album has it's moments, particularly with 'I Don't Mind' which I reckon their fans won't either . It is maybe not as strong as their Dance to the Radio debut 'Wait for Me'. 'Day and Month' is reminiscent of fellow Yorkshire men Arctic Monkeys , and the closers 'No State to Drive' and 'Where Are You?' are a return to the indie pop of the earlier releases .
