Review Summary: A hotch-potch of Snow Patrol, climate change, and uncertainty makes Athlete's third album a non-starter. Popular music has been blighted, consistently, by the obsession on finding the new version of something old. Most people, quite rightly, dismiss it as a dumb practice that achieves little or nothing, but it continues unabated - Badfinger were the new Beatles, David Bowie was the new Scott Walker, both Van Halen and The White Stripes were the new Led Zeppelin, Radiohead were the new Nirvana in 1993 and then the new Pink Floyd in 1997, Oasis were the new Beatles, Blur were the new Kinks, Jewel was the new Joni Mitchell, Coldplay were the new Radiohead, Trivium were the new Metallica, The Strokes were the new Television, and everyone from Townes Van Zandt to Warren Zevon to Nick Cave to Bright Eyes was/is the new Bob Dylan.
