'Backfire at the Disco' is one of those songs that will rattle around your head for the rest of the day after you catch it on the radio. Bristling with energy, its infectious chorus and kinetic drumming are supported by "wooh wooh" backing vocals and guitars that jostle to outdo each other. Having blistered out of the tracks at light speed, the track proceeds to throw a bit of a curveball, winding down with an excellent, minute-long instrumental outro - something of a rarity in contemporary pop. The cherry on top of the icing? The CD single even features a worthwhile B-side, a live recording of 'Backfire' with New Order/Joy Division legend Peter Hook on bass. Ace.
