Aug 8, 2014There are no words to describe how much I relate to this entire album. This album made me feel like I am in high school again in just 44 minutes.
This is the best debut album from any artist I have ever heard in a long time since John Newman's Tribute album. This album had this pop-rock sound that I absolutely loved and even if the lyrics are sad it makes me happy.
I relate to the songs that The Wombats' lead vocalist is singing about. I could relate his struggles even though I did not experience it yet. The lyrics are also funny as well and this rarely happens to me.
I think my only complaint that while I like all the songs and it has a deeper story in it, the tracklist in the middle seemed like a collection of songs they wrote with no plot if you listen to the album in its order but this is easily overlooked for me because I love this album and its songs in it and each song has a story in it so it's fine.
This is the best album I have ever heard in a long time and I think it's safe to say that I am a Wombats fan and that I will check out their other album soon.… Expand
Jan 15, 2011Fantastic album. It's got the spirit and melodies that alot of indie bands are missing these days. It's almost impossible not to dance along to tracks such as 'Let's dance to joy division' and 'Kill the Director'. This cd is great, because it has those tracks you love at first listen (Moving to New York), and then a couple which grow on you till they're your faves (Patricia the Stripper), though it also has a couple of fillers (Lost in the Post, Party in the Forest), all the tracks are fun and energetic. Notably, every song has a topic that is completely uncliche, which makes for an interesting listen… Expand
