Luckily, the Scottish trio's new album rocks.

The opening track, "Different People," starts off small, relying on the strength and breadth of Simon Neil's vocals, but quickly builds to anthemic proportions with husky guitar and pounding drums.

"Black Chandelier" opens in a cappella, with emotional but almost humorous lyrics like "You left my heart like an abandoned car." The chorus catapults in and again with volume and strength that could fill a stadium.

The songs on "Opposites" are varied and multifaceted: "Biblical" is angst-ridden ("Baby if you could, would you go back to the start?" Neil sings), and "The Thaw" uses orchestral strings to reach its crescendo.
