Excellent, excellent review Thomas- basically encapsulates everything I want to like about this record.

For me, it's a double-edged sword; the lyrics are often relatable or absurdly specific, the vocals either fitting or off-putting. I guess my biggest problem is that while this may be one of the best albums to come from this "genre" yet, it still doesn't do much (if anything) to separate itself from the Front-Bottoms or Tiny Moving Parts of McCafferty. I will say that "Charlie Black" and "Your Graduation" are near-classics. and that closer is gorgeous. I sincerely hate"Going to Bed Now" though.

Yeahh, like I said, I'm really torn on the lyrics here. I can say "Who cares?" to a point because it's what the band does, but come on..."My breath smells like coffee and garlic?" Something about "Bitter pills in chocolate pudding"...these are the ones that kill me. Again, I really, really want to like this record more than I do. For me, it's about a 7.
