The key to the tension of this group is the balance/tension between Berninger's almost droll delivery and the intensity of the playing, perhaps best exemplified by lead single The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness, on which a fuzzy electric guitar dips in and out of an almost urgent rhythm.
Elsewhere, Walk It Back's synth pulses frame a spoken delivery and Born to Beg's lilting piano riff allows Berninger to reflect on a relationship.
