Album Review: Cymbals Eat Guitars - Lenses Alien

After a couple of line-up changes and the pressure of following up a stunning debut album (Why There Are Mountains), Cymbals Eat Guitars could have been forgiven for stumbling at the increasingly important second album hurdle. Lenses Alien is anything but a stumble, with the band crafting their swarming 90ís alt-rock style into a darker, more frenetic, sound.

Lenses continues this trend, the bandís sound is still rich with stunning guitar riffs, melodic piano and DíAgostinoís potent vocal presence.
