I'll be honest, I didn't know about Biffy Clyro, until seeing them live at the Rockness Festival and they blew me away. A bit of Indie, a bit of grunge, pop, it's a nice mix of genres...but what I like the most about Biffy is their lyrics, the type that make you think for a split second....or take you away (Many of Horror).

As for other reviewers saying the different "moods" in the album are a bit off...I beg to differ, I like it when a band knows how to mix it up a bit. Albums that have the same stream through out, tend to get boring fairly quick. So Biffy Clyro did it right by my standards; of course, we all have different tastes and opinions.

Whatever your take is about this album in particular, one thing is for sure...Biffy Clyro is a really good band, so don't pass them up. Enjoy.

I stumbled upon Biffy Clyro entirely by chance thanks to their song playing in the trailer for Charlie St. Cloud. After a little searching, I came upon this album. Only Revolutions is chock full of big hooks and clever lyrics, with song like 'Many of Horror' and 'The Captain' leading the way. However, I think it was put together a bit slap dash and there are tracks that just don't seem to belong. The pacing of the album is a bit thrown off, as can be seen in between 'Mountains' and 'Many of Horror'. Two great songs with huge emotion end up sandwiching the terrible and out of place 'Shock Shock'. The album has some incredible and honest music, but it feels like they might have missed out on an even better, cohesive experience.

The first Biffy song I ever heard was Mountains. My life has never been the same. This album represents Biffy Clyro's maturation. On this album, they demonstrate that they are diverse, talented, and generally epic. This album is more refined than Puzzle, but has plenty of hard songs and plenty of gusto. They have done what few bands have been able to do--they have made themselves more broadly accessible, while simultaneously maintaining their personality, style, and creativity. This album is easily one of my top ten of all time. It might make my top five.

Great hooks, strong pop sensibility with enough hardness to knock you off your chair every now and then. Elements of Kyuss, Foo, Jimmy Eat, and a little Scottish folkish flare, duct taped together in a very new way. Really a delicate balance. This is one of the best bands in the world right now. Saw them on festival live set on PLD and was stricken. Big Live Power Trio feel that is rare now. Must see them live.

Having heard the name for years and dismissing it as nutter rock, I only recently heard their new single "Black Chandeliers" on British radio; why haven't I embraced this band before now?! Bought this album and immediately fell under their spell. Tight, hooky, messy, sharp, pulsing, a great sense of wordplay and a sense of humor, this band should be the center of your life right now. Go ahead and get "Puzzles" first so you can appreciate the progression in their songwriting. Yes, a lot of earlier fans think they've gone too AOR or mainstream with this release, but if those fans decide to forsake Biffy, I'll gladly embrace the band in their place.

I'm 60 years old and play guitar as well as being a BLUES / GUITAR nut.....I stumbled on BIFFY by accident and would normaly have dismissed it as it is not in the genres I like.....I would have missed some of the best music going around today.....this is a classic rock cd that might well be in a timecapsule as the best this era has to offer....my favourite bands are KINGS'X and MOE and these young scots are at least their equal....the hooks are irresistable....the lyrics intelligent and original and even my better half who rarely sees eye to eye with me in things music, loves this band.....the FOOFIGHTERS should be supporting this band and not the other way around.....why they are not the biggest band in rock today is a mistery....if there is justice, they soon will be !!

Wow! I liked this CD the first time I played it but it just gets better with every listen. Lots of new sections seem to keep appearing in each song. I also love the way Simon Neil's vocal style changes between each song and even within a song.

Kilmarnock-based indie rock band Biffy Clyro has surprised us with another studio album: “Only Revolutions”. With a front cover layout similar in vein to that of Pink Floyd, but with a similar sound to that of their previous album “Puzzle”, the Scots has put out an album that keeps going with the wonderful, weird, original and energetic performance of its predecessor. The opener The Captain, That Golden Rules and Bubbles are the tracks that kick this album off. Bubbles is my favorite track on this disc. Then, they suddenly changed to a more melodic sound on God and Satan, only to return to their energetic sound on Born On A Horse, Mountains and Shock, Shock. Many of Horror is more melodic and softer than the previous tracks. Boom, Blast and Ruin and Cloud of Stink put the band back into the energetic path. Know Your Quarry follows the same path as Many of Horror, while Whorses closes the disc on a higher note. So, if you love Puzzle, you will certainly love this one. Only Revolutions is a huge winner.So, I highly recommend it!
