  Works for me

| | See all Amjac17's reviews (55)

For me, Biffy Clyro have a definitive and different sound to other bands. And this works for me, but I can see how others may not be a fan because of it.

In this album, there is a good variety of different songs.

1. The Captain.
I've always liked this song since I very first heard it, it has a old piratey feeling to it which is quite different and is very melodic.

2. That Golden Rule
Because this song had a lot of airplay on the radio, I tried to avoid listening to it as much as possible because I knew it would make me hate the song. It's not one of my favourites but I can still listen to it.

3. Bubbles.
Quality. Definately one of the best songs on the album.

4. God & Satan.
Again, from the first time I heard this song I loved it.

5. Born On a Horse.
An odd little song, but I like it.

6. Mountains
Another song which recieved a lot of airtime on the radio and really made this band go mainstream. Occassionaly I will skip this song because I cannot avoid listening to it elsewhere. Shame really.

7. Shock Shock.
Another odd song in my oppinion, but after a couple of listens it becomes a good song.

8. Many of Horror.
Now this is a real shame... After the X-Factor fiasco, I don't think I can ever listen to this song and not think about how bad the other version is. It really has ruined this song for me.

9. Booooooom, Blast & Ruin.
Another one of my favourites.

10. Cloud of Stink.
This song really grew on me. Give it a chance if you don't like it at first.

11. Know Your Quarry.
Another very good song which seems to not be mentioned often.

12. Whorses.
One of my favourites on the album, and a great song to end this great album.

This is an amazing album from a brilliant British band. Each track is great and I would earge everyone to buy this album as it is one of the best Brtish rock albums in a long time.

  well, this changed my mind!

Ok, in all honestly i prejudged this band, there was a lot of rage about them and i wasn't convinced (without giving them a real chance), and i heard 'a song' on the radio and instantly thought that is truly brilliant, this was "The Captain" which opens a perfect album, as you can see i definitely do love Biffy Clyro now, but i am dissapointed in the "Hardcore" Biffy Clyro fans who dislike New fans for loving this album, it was the first stuff i ever heard from them, it's not my fault. (there old stuff is great, big fan of vertigo of bliss) But as i said this album really is "perfect" track after track after track you find yourself drawn into the catchy riffs and vocals, booooom blast and ruin is a personal favourite but honestly i think every song is the best song, but to anyone-inculding people who are like i was-listen to this album, you will change your mind... and then purchase Puzzle!

What an album! I bought this because i'm seeing Foo Fighters later on in the year, and thought I should give it a listen, cos they are supporting them. Am I glad I did! This album is superb! Stand out tracks for me are Bubbles and Many of Horror, but they are all fantastic. BUY IT NOW!!

Only Revolutions is one of the greatest albums of all time. Scottish Rockers Biffy Clyro have made an album which will go down in history as an all time great album. Every song on the album could be a number 1 single.

A Must for anybody who loves brilliant music

Biffy Clyro is now one of my very favourite bands. The Captain starts this album off with a bang, and is surely one of the greatest songs ever made. It just makes you feel like you rule the world! Mountain is also a marvelous addition to this cd, as is many of horror. All three are very different songs, and help build up an amazingly diverse and adventurous album. I LOVE IT!!

One of the best CDs I own. There isn't one bad track on here, even though it's really diverse as an album. Biffy's sound has definitely evolved and you will get the purists who'll say they've sold out but I think they've just matured, this album is phenomenal!

Stand out tracks for me are 'Bubbles', 'Boooom Blast and Ruin', 'Many of Horror' and 'That Golden Rule'.
