As a rule, seeing a song divided into parts is often a warning sign that something pretentious lurks ahead. This rule is once again reaffirmed by New Adventures. ‘How I got my Devil Back’…oh sorry, ‘Part I’…is Athlete-meets-Keane, studio polished, safe soft-rock. And though every moral fibre in my body wants to hate this, the wining vocals and billowing piano part are as infectious as cholera. And as you know this will soon be on the latest teen-super hit TV show, throw down your defences now and prepare roll on the floor in a combination of lush wonder and hideous self-loathing.
