All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Two Door Cinema Club returned with Beacon after a couple of years touring in support of their debut album, Tourist History. While that set of songs was already pretty sleek thanks to the production skills of Eliot James, the band opted to polish things further with the help of Jacknife Lee, who has worked with R.E.M., U2, Snow Patrol, and plenty of other epic-sounding artists.

Elsewhere, Two Door Cinema Club still have a remarkable knack for the kind of charming electro-guitar pop that made their debut so appealing, particularly on the bittersweet "Sleep Alone" and the pretty title track. [A two-disc, 25-track Deluxe Edition was also released.]

    I really like it but i was suprised when it arrived and the second disc is them singing live at some academy because after looking over this page and ordering it i wasnt expecting it to be live at all. They still sound good but just sorta annoyed BN didnt tell me or put it in the description because there is nothing on the page that says 2nd disc is live. Love Two Door Cinema Club just bummed at Barnes and Noble :(
