Like the others, I disagree with this review. I think the three songs you listed as the weakest on this album are actually the strongest.
Bambi shows a unique side of Tokyo Police Club that they haven't done before. The intro is unique and the whole song is awesome. Not Sick is also a strong song. I really love the bass and how it carries the song along with the vocals.
Personally, this is probably my favorite album I've heard this year actually. Agree to disagree, but I think with Champ, Tokyo Police Club really branched out and improved on how they made music. I really like Elephant Shell and their earlier work, but some of it mashes in together. With Champ, I think every song is recognizable and how they've written their songs is now in a different tone. That tone though still makes for a great indie pop record.
