In short, it's epic. Although there's no new 'My People' there's a boat full of dance anthems that not only incorporate the ocean theme of 'Pacificia' but are also going to sound truly excellent live.
Admittedly on first listen the album is in some ways a grating and confusing experience, there's the 6 minute techno track 'Youth In Trouble' and then the sea shanty styed 'Ghosts'. But after a few spins the experimental sounds and slightly eccentric production begin to come together and The Presets genius becomes clearly obvious.
Stand out tracks include: 'Fall' -- Julian Hamilton's vocals at their haunting best, 'Fast Seconds' will be mind-blowing live and 'Promises' a summer anthem with New Order flavours.
