I've reached the decision that Broadcast shine much brighter on their single and EP releases than their full-length albums. This year's The Sound Made By People has been overshadowed by the group's release of the four extended-play singles that have surrounded the release.
The latest single features five all-new tracks which span about 20 minutes. There's a certain balance contained herein between distorted noise and pretty melodies, apparent on many of the single releases yet missing from the album.
On Extended Play Two, Broadcast do indeed let loose and show us what they're made of. If their albums were half as daring and captivating as their singles, I would be a greater fan. For now, I'll stick with the singles.
