RECORDING

The band spent most of 2011 writing new songs for the follow up to Fire like This
Fire like This
. After spending the summer playing various festivals, they played their last show of 2011 on 17 September and began recording the album a few weeks later at The Motor Museum studio in Liverpool, again with Mike Crossey, who also produced Box of Secrets and Fire Like This
Fire Like This
. Recording started on 18 October 2011. On 12 December 2011, the band revealed the first teaser from the album on their website, with a video from the studio, with 3 more videos to be revealed before the album's release. During early January 2012, the band recorded b-sides, bonus tracks and alternate versions of songs for the album's release.

In a press release, Carter described the album: "With this album we totally threw out the rulebook of how we write and record. We decided we wanted to make a really ambitious record, not something which reflects our live show but something which is only limited by our imaginations and not by how many instruments we use onstage. We figured the best way to push ourselves forward was to write the best possible songs and melodies we could - once you have that as your foundation, you have the freedom to go anywhere with the sounds you use. We feel like a totally different band now. We feel like we're shooting for the stars."

At Metacritic , In Time to Voices
In Time to Voices
received 70/100, based on 12 reviews, indicating "Generally favourable reviews". Jon O'Brien at AllMusic states "Foals producer Mike Crossey may remain the only real constant from their more ferocious first two albums, but that's not to say they've lost their edge." Although, O,Brien criticizes the album for ending in a "whimper" rather than a "bang", due to the closing tracks. Simon Price of The Independent observes "while they haven't quite justified their claim to have thrown away the rulebook, they're executing their spooked alt-rock with added poise and class." Price praises the album for the focus on the songwriting and hooks that "get under your skin". Sputnikmusic

staff reviewer Davey Boy opined "It is more than an admirable attempt at growth, since it's expansively fuller sound IS growth. And yet, one cannot help but get the feeling that Blood Red Shoes
Blood Red Shoes
are still capable of much better."

Jen Dan from Adequacy.net described the album as " their indie rock sound yet again" Although, Dan compares it to Box of Secrets , calling it "not as spectacularly primal" as that album. At Shields Gazette , it is consider as a "progression" of their style by "greater ambition complementing their garage roots."
