Unfortunately, Places Like This more resembles that messy room than the barely contained creativity of In Case We Die, which I guess makes me the angry Dad with the sore foot in this scenario. It's no joy to say that this third full-length from AiH often misses the mark; the band clearly has a surplus of ideas and energy, which is the opposite problem to the majority of indie mopesters churning out the same album over and over again. They may all be errors borne of excess enthusiasm, but nonetheless they're stylistic choices unlikely to endear Architecture in Helsinki to anyone over the age of four. Elsewhere, the band's unorthodox arrangements lead to dead-ends more than usual. While the mid-song detours may be AiH's signature, they remain a risky move, and Places Like This spotlights a couple moments where it backfires on the band.

Although the band formed in Melbourne, Architecture in Helsinki's six musicians are dotted across several continents, and they take the same multinational approach to their music; apparently they discuss song ideas via instant messaging. This album, their third, hurls in everything from trombone and steel drums to something called a "two-note apocalyptic swamp axe".

Unoriginal, haphazardly thrown together and lacking most of what could make it the least bit enjoyable, Places Like This just proves that Architecture in Helsinki is a one trick pony.

Places Like This brings the band truly center stage, the follow up to their breakthrough album. At their cores, the songs on the album are simply written pop songs. Standard chord progressions with standard beats. The problem is more the musicianship of the band. Like It or Not demonstrates the issues that plague the album well. It begins with trumpet and childish wah-wah vocals. It’s hard to criticize Architecture in Helsinki for this album because everything they do is obviously intentional. No one can be serious about those voices or the cheesy feel of the music. Still, the musicianship is never great, sometimes dreadful.
