The only song I don't care for is Don't Stop, other than that it's a great fun summer party album.

haha I don't think I could agree with this review more. I checked them out when one of the APnet guys wrote about them in his SXSW journal, and I couldn't believe that I was enjoying their EP.

Never been a fan of Passion Pit, MGMT, etc... but I can't stop listening to Torches.

I like Pumped Up Kicks but don't think I could stomach a whole album of it, especially as what I have heard is even more sugary.

Great review. I really like this album. It's not a masterpiece or anything, but it's fun as hell and it's a great listen.

i thought the stuff on the ep was the better than the album as a whole. 3 ep songs = 9/10. rest of the songs on the new cd 5/10

maybe i need more plays

I love that "Black Kids' Partie Traumatic" is in the RIYL. I actually enjoyed that album for what it was. I'll have to check these guys out.

People don't like "Pumped Up Kicks"? Do they hate newborn babies as well?
