With a penchant for new wave and funk allied with an affection for unwieldy song titles, Germany's The Robocop Kraus display an interesting and awkward opposition to the New York scene. Whilst their last outing was sporadically great, 'They Think They Are...' reveals that they are an albums act after all with more emphasis on melodic hooks than angular posturing. Recent chant-along single 'You Don't Have To Shout' is the perfect showcase for Thomas Lang's jumpy, epileptic vocals and the pop-centric approach pays dividends on 'I Picture You' and 'Too True To Be Good' as well. Elsewhere the angst-heavy 'All The Good Men', 'Small Houses Odd Cars' and 'Concerned, Your Secular Friends' exhibit The Robocop Kraus' gifts for clever key changes and wired tension. Four albums in to their career, this Nuremberg foursome can rightfully claim a share to the adulation that Franz Ferdinand are currently receiving.
