Advance word that the Griswolds were ripping up the rulebook on their second album wasn’t far from the truth. Turning to producer Andrew Dawson (Kanye, fun.), the Sydney quartet have created a densely packed R&B-inflected pop album that seizes the production Zeitgeist and could confidently compete on the international stage. “Out Of My Head” is a link to their sonic past, but the rest of the album sees them channelling the spirits of vintage Michael Jackson and Prince and merging it with the uptown funk of Justin Timberlake. It’s not all fun and games – the title-track and “I Want It All” send the album out on a raw, reflective note that adds an extra layer of complexity and depth.
