I expected more from Crown The Empire´s debut full length "The Fallout", I was impressed by their first "Limitless" EP that showed a very promising and hungry band. Unfortunately their new album feels a bit safe and less artsy, CTE is caught in the mainstream and has lost a bit of their unique sound from the EP. This is still a good album with some great songs like "Makeshift chemistry" and "Menace", but I can´t stop thinking about how good it could actually have been. The production sounds expensive and I bet they will still make a name of themselves, however I want some more of those unpredictable songstructures on the next record.
