The sixth album from We Are Scientists, a duo consisting of Keith Murray (guitar/vocals) and Chris Cain (bass), is a somewhat confusing but strangely enjoyable record as it slides throughout the genre spectrum.

During the course of the 10 track offering the pair serve up a rather muddled presentation of songs filled with superficial yet catchy lyrical content. Some tracks, such as opener One In, One Out, are synth heavy 80s pop whilst others, like KIT, slip into more melodic folk areas.

Megaplex is at its best when it finds a way to blend these various different styles in a unique way. The standout track in this sense is Heart Is A Weapon as it creates a unique blend between synth pop and funky guitar melodies.
