I have tried as hard as I possibly could to like this album. I can't. I simply fail to see what makes it deservant of such high ratings from everyone. Yes, Monday and Unglued are both good songs, but I stopped listening to them after a week or so, and I could never manage to get into any other tracks no matter how hard I tried. The music isn't particularly unique either. I don't know what caused them to receive an 8.5 for creativity. They pretty much just sound like Death Cab copiers to me, but with less variation between their songs (and fewer good ones).
I just don't understand what makes it so special.
