It basically sounds like they're picking up right where they left off with their odd, nuttily brilliant mix of hardcore and mainstream pop style. The beat for the track, Born to Lose, is huge, naturally, though a comes at you a little more fleshed out and electronic than the inner ear mashing percussion was on their debut album, Treats. You can actually hear the money they had for production in the mix, which is refreshing.
