Biffy Clyro – A Celebration Of Endings

Reassuringly massive.
Label: Warner
Rating: ★★★

If there’s one thing Biffy Clyro do well, it’s go big – and ‘A Celebration Of Endings’ is most certainly an album that comes supersized. Packed with typical bombast, it’s lean, mean and more often than not anthemic.

While Biffy may be more of a known quantity at this stage – stadium-ready rockers that came from a more angular past – what they do, they do well. Highlight ‘End Of’ still feels to have a sense of danger to it, while ‘Tiny Indoor Fireworks’ packs the woahs and twinkling, lighters-aloft middle eights. 

Exciting enough to blow out the cobwebs, familiar enough to feel like home – it’s reassuringly massive.
