Enter Shikari: Take to the Skies
Mike Diver, Drowned in Sound, 2 April 2007
IT BEGINS with a shrill "SHIT!" and a choir of screams, but the thrill doesn't last: like riding even the most knuckle-whitening of rollercoasters, Enter Shikari's much-anticipated debut album reveals itself as a wholly one-dimensional listen as early as the third or fourth song, the equivalent of the third or fourth time around said stomach-turning sequence of twisters, given that the structural schematics of each of these 17 tracks are depressingly formulaic.
