    there's nothing beautiful about 8 hipsters groaning, making abrasive noise, and singing horribly off-key. this album gives me a headache.

  1. Gira's half is solid, but Akron/Family can't help but demand most of the credit for the record's artistic heft and overall cohesiveness.
  2. A rare, perfect instance of collaboration, where two distinct sets of talents merge into something larger than its parts.
  3. None of the tracks are more noteworthy than anything on Sing "Other People", Angels' latest and straightest LP, and the foreshortened format disables development. But Gira's fatherly measuredness is a nice foil to Akron's hyperkinetic mini-opera.
