Two years of non-stop success and touring have failed to sap the Chiefs of their joi de vive.

Those lovably primary-school singalong stomps have made the move to big school.

The old uniform of simple, jolly riffs are now made of a classier, smoother cloth of (slightly) more complex musical patterns - but the cut is still as sharp.

There's still whooo-ing and aaaaah-ing, but the sound and lyrics can falter in the more contemplative moments.

So not all of it scores a direct hit, but most songs will have you hooked in no time.

For a second album, the boys come near the top of the class. 4/5
