On their claustrophobic fifth album, this coed Liver-pool synth-pop quartet build on their creepiest former glories while withholding the hooks that previously put the sweet in their bitter. Despite layer upon layer of lacy plastic instrumentation and manipulated vocals, Gravity the Seducer lacks the infectious, dark-disco rumble of 2005 U.K. hit "Destroy Everything You Touch."
