American pop-punk quartet Cartel have come a long way from the masterpiece that was their first full-length, ‘Chroma’. Despite their subsequent attempts though, they have never managed to emulate this record’s success. The latest effort to get back to their prior levels of success comes in the form of their new album, ‘Collider’, which, whilst being eagerly anticipated by fans, myself included, sadly doesn’t quite live up to the hype. However, the second half of the album does show some promise and possibly a new direction for the band’s future.
