The piece soon begins to take cues from stadium rock, and introduces a much more toe-tapping rhythm that leads into an excellent breakdown. Polkadot Cadaver have subverted formulaic songwriting yet again with their second release, which is especially impressive since the majority of songs conform to traditional structure.
Stronger Than Weak returns us to slick polka dot cadaver sex offender tracklist in of Abilene puzzles but the song itself is not among the band's greatest moments.

Polkadot Cadaver have subverted formulaic songwriting yet again with their second release, which is especially impressive since the majority of songs conform to traditional structure.

So you can probably understand the high expectations that I had when I heard the announcement of a new album coming out in May. Ultimately, I'd say that Animal Kingdom is this album's biggest surprise. Really looking forward to it.
Polkadot Cadaver are made something of a contradiction in this sense, although they have very experimental arrangements with their music, the songs here are kept within a fairly straightfoward pop format. The inherent humour is present on all the tracks, and the classic songwriting style that makes use of verse, chorus, and breakdown works in an intuitive, and almost gleefully reverential way.
Sex Offender rates just above the excellent level but I it's definitely standing on the edge to the good, but non-essential territory. Worship The Sun is the only track that sounds a bit out of place on this record since the Christmas references don't actually glue that well with this otherwise rather excellent track.
