Had this album for while and it's really grown on me. I don't think it's as good as their debut, but it's still full of great anthemic singalongs that are catchy as hell. Primadonna Like Me is excellent, as is Fire (Part 1) - which was produced by Butch Walker - and Ashes (Part 2), which is like something off Bat Out Of Hell meets Queen's Don't Stop Me Now. I really like Tatler Magazine too, also very much Queen-like in the vein of Killer Queen or Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy.

Overall I rate it as a very good follow-up and exactly the kind of album they needed to make in order to build on the momentum and really crossover. They're on the verge of doing something quite extraordinary for a British band and I don't personally believe going harder would have been the right move, or really been representative of the character the band have as party staring, glam dandy's who bring some much needed flash and flair to the scene.

As for the Kesha song, the version without her is far superior and rocks harder so just stop the album before that one starts playing at the end!
