I like this band, but I don't think I would buy a whole album of theirs

Hmm...I've never even heard of this band. But I love good lyrics and your review makes me want to check them out. What's a good RIYL?

I'd say RIYL Johnny Foreigner, Architecture in Helsinki, and Art Brut.

Ah! Honestly, I don't know any of those either. But I'm always up for new music. Especially since you gave the lyrics a 9.

I'm watching their music video on YouTube and I love the singer's voice. Good stuff.

I love this band. Great review Jeremy.
Agreed on both counts. A great disc from a band, who by my count, does very little wrong.

Love this band, love the album. I think it's without a doubt their best work; their sound has matured so much since their debut full-length only two years ago.

Also, 83% is way too low in my opinion; even more so when you consider the new MCS got over 92%.

Each reviewer has their own standards, don't judge Jeremy's 83 percent against Drew's 93 percent for MDL, it's just not an accurate comparison.

Yeah thats true. I understand that different reviewers have different standards and tastes etc, but it does create an inconsistency with the review scores for the website collectively. It was a good review regardless.

Cannot get enough of this album. The Sea is a Good Place to Think of the Future is already an all-time favorite of mine.

I love this band and this album, although this isn't my favorite album by them. "Straight in at 101" is the standout track on this album, in my opinion.
