Parts of this album remind me a bit of Student Rick from back in the day.

Listened to it once so far and it was obviously very catchy, but I thought it was a rather weak release in all. I will keep listening though, stuff always takes a little time to grow on me.

This review is full of hyperbole. I enjoyed the album, but 88%? Really?
It may be hyperbolic. But I've given this album a month and it hasn't died on me. So any exaggerated statements are just a reflection of the fact that it can't get old.

Too many references to the EP, but good review and very good album.
It was referenced three times, as a reminder that the band didn't really write 12 new songs. That very point, as referenced in the penultimate paragraph is one of the album's few downsides. Being that the review is so praiseworthy, I had to emit a negative when possible.

For real. I like the album and all, but you went a little too far in this review.

The album's good, but c'mon an 88%... Also, this band is just a tad overrated.
An 88 is a B plus. How is this not a B plus record? As for the overrated claim, we can agree to disagree. I think if anything they are extremely underrated.

Does anyone else think it's terrible fucking timing to release this record? When I think of summer music, this is honestly one of my favorite bands to listen to while driving with the windows down. 40 degree weather in Chicago doesn't mix as well.

Edit: still haven't listened to it, but I'm about to - just read in the review that it's an "autumnal" album, so perhaps what I said will be wrong...

Haha, not a chance. They don't even come close to deserving all the nuts that get busted over them.

I don't really agree. I got tired of the album after four, five times while their previous efforts lasted more of than a month. I think I miss some passion, it sounds like they wrote the songs in one day, I can't help it.

this will be the end of the year's surprising sleeper hit on the site, no doubt in my mind.
