Feels like a B-sides album
Very disjointed and doesn't flow very well. Almost too self-conscious and attention seeking. Here's the wannabe Bond song, here's the dubstep song, here's the obligatory Queen song, here's the Olympics song, here's Chris singing. It seems like they're trying so hard to be so cool and different, that they've lost the original point of why they were good. Showbiz is a better album - its more honest and listenable - after a few listens, 2nd Law falls flat on its face.
