A whirlwind 18 months on from their debut, FOB return with another slab of turbo-angst.

Despite sounding depressingly like a dozen or more emo acts plying their wares at the moment, FOB continue to sit at the top of the pile across the pond, despite upstarts like Panic! At The Disco having moved the goalposts somewhat.

The shouty-stomp of lead single This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race is a fair indicator of what the other 14 tracks hold in store - plenty of hyperactive shouting set to production values Beyoncé would be proud of.

Infinity On High is a polished but uninspired addition to a stagnant scene. 2/5
