High-energy house with plenty of hooks.
"Carpet Floors" employs a wacky piano sample, with a rough-and-tumble loop that sounds like it's tripping over the kick drum. "Do Good Boys Get The Fear?" sounds like a remix of The Price Is Right theme, with a wistful melody that never resolves the way you expect it to, capturing the bittersweet mood that made "Sometimes The Going Gets A Little Tough" shine. The title track riffs on old rave and hardcore. A barrage of chipmunk vocals, stuttering drums, rollicking piano runs and hoover-like synths, it reaches top speed too early. Lacking the dynamism of the music it's taking cues from, "Dance Music Has Betrayed Us All" feels limp, showing the limits of McCorry's instant-sugar-rush style.
But McCorry's insistent approach works wonders on "Opening Up," where an unlikely sample—a strummed guitar—alongside the giddy kick drum and slowed-down choruses. That contrast makes McCorry's music feel transcendent, its happy-sad combo mirroring the life of a raver, where one great night can lead to a world of pain—but be worth it.
