King Manuel
4 stars Exciting, Innovative and progressive

This is probably Archive's most progressive release so far. Progressive not in the sense of Progressive Rock (it's probably the album with the least "Rock" in Archive's discography), but in terms of progression in sound and structure; a demonstration that on Album Nr. 10 Archive are a progressing collective that is not standing still after all those years. This album, although in many ways still radiating Archive as we know them, definitely feels different. It is more electronic, more machine beat driven, darker and the individual songs often deviate from the initial path they started on. And this is what makes this album one of the most interesting, exciting and rewarding Archive albums to listen to. There are surprises lurking around every beat and harmony keeping the listener engaged from the first to the last second. It is definitely an album requiring undivided attention and concentration - or in other words this is a typical headphone album I would say. Highly recommended to the open minded Archive fan!
