Review-In comparison to the band's debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, the album has been described as "more ambitious, heavier...and with a fiercely bright production". It is compared to Myths of the Near Future, the debut album by Klaxons - "not a new rave album...[but] more part of an art-rock lineage than in the blokerock tradition of Oasis et al." While the opening tracks of the album are seen as "frantic, awkward and pretty uncompromising", the remainder has influences from The Smiths - "twanging, quasi-ambient backdrops...and Turner’s voice [...] crooning like Morrissey or Richard Hawley." Matt Helders said "James was DJing loads in the evening so we’d go out and . . . have a dance." As a result, the drum rhythms of Helders and bassist Nick O’Malley have drawn comparisons to the Eighties funk band ESG. The band's love of classic movies, previously seen on the b-side "Chun Li's Spinning Bird Kick," also influences their new style. For example, the organ at the beginning of the album's final track, "505" is taken directly from Ennio Morricone's soundtrack for The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (where Angel Eyes enters before the final standoff).
