I concur. Their most complete work to date. I'm glad it's getting some name recognition.

And anyone who hasn't seen them live should do so.

I'm going to see them in DC on the 24th of November! I've had my tickets since July/August and I'm so extremely excited!

I think I might lose my girlfriend to Tegan though. I'm no competition...

I'm hesitant to purchase this album. I'm not sure if I'll like it. But i can't stop listening to the single "the con."

It's about time the sheep that watch MTV smartened up. Definitely my album of the year.

Incredible record, great band. They deserve all the success they can get. It's a crime that they haven't even broken 100k in sales yet...
