It's a really good album if you can push back the it's-all-been-done-before factor. Nothing groundbreaking, just some good tunes.

Fuck yeah. Finally, a spot on review. This album is definitely a "contender" for my top albums this year.

I agree with your review. Good music that my mom will enjoy when I blast, but she can't suggest that I'm copying her.

I can not agree with calling it shoegaze.

I love this album. I'd say it's more twee like the Field Mice than it is shoegaze, due to the number of references such as "This Love Is Fucking Right!" being a tip of the hat to "This Love Is Not Wrong." You can definitely hear the My Bloody Valentine influence from their "Ecstasy & Wine" period though.
