While I do like this album, I would probably rate it around the low 80's. It's nothing really groundbreaking and I don't think it has much lasting value. Otherwise it is a good Cd, my least favorite song right now is probably Gutter. I just can't get into it for some reason. I'll spin it a couple more times though.

This band deserves more credit on this site.

Absence is a great record.

Really like how this sounds, but I just got Great Northern--they sound remarkably similar. Prefer GN's female vocals to these for some reason.

I went and checked GN out to compare. I hear vague similarities, but not enough to say Paper Route and Great Northern sound alike.

I heard some songs on blogs from these guys and was blown away. "Last Time" alone convinced me this was an album to buy, but the album is very MuteMath mixed with 80's synth-pop and is totally worth getting. Solid review too.

Absence is amazing. It was my first taste of PR, and I'm really glad I decided to check it out.

"Tiger Teeth" was my least favorite song, I thought "Good Intentions" was a pretty decent song. "Wish" and "Carousel" are obviously quite the choices for best songs.

Good review. =)

Edit: I'd like to mention that this is my favorite of the year thus far.

One of the best records of the year, hands down.
