Biffy Clyro’s album 'The Vertigo Of Bliss' was recorded in one day. One day. Guns n' Roses they aren’t. Thank God. Ensconced in Great Linford Manor studio with Chris Sheldon they ripped through a set of fifteen songs and spent the rest of the week on Playstation. The result is a rich, diverse album of angular post-hardcore / alt-rock. Call it what you want. Taking it’s title from a phrase in contemporary novel ‘I Lucifer’, ‘The Vertigo Of Bliss’ is an inspired rush of emotion, contemplation and twisting melodies.
