Are you getting things mixed up with Argento's Inferno?

Artistically, 'Songs of Innocence' is the band throwing in the towel. Repeated listens shows they can't even play safe as competently as they used to. The irony is that they've always been pretty...

Oh, get over yourself.

Forcibly pushing a giveaway album of bland, supermarket pop-rock onto 500 million unawares iTunes users stinks both of desperation and of a band uttterly terrified of being found as irrelevent.

The Signal

Handsomely-shot, low-budget science fiction drama. Very intriguing to begin with, and with the odd creepy flourish. But then it dovetails into a sort of YA franchise starter with arthouse...
