Biffy Clyro | Questions And Answers (Beggars Banquet)
A trailer for their forthcoming album, 'Questions And Answers' is available on those twin evils of modern music: the dreaded two-part CD single. The five new tracks strung across these discs however, neatly dodge the MTV2 alt-rock wasteland with furious flickers of the Pixies fed through melodies that Feeder can only dream of. Biffy Clyro are Six By Seven undergoing intensive anger-management controls. They're at their best however on the oddly touching Let's Get Smiling, which is akin to Buffalo Tom bossed by sharp-eared engineers. It's heartfelt, and thus deserves at least a small portion of yours.
