    An indie pop masterpiece that's easily one of the best records to come out this year.
  2. Between its fizzy lyrics, brittle guitar riffs, cheesy Casio keyboards, and primitive rhythms, the record seems very much out of touch with contemporary pop; its ebullience and innocence hark back to a time that now seems very long ago.
  3. Much popier than the band’s previous efforts, this is a fun album with catchy beats, cool guitars and a lo-fi sound.
  4. Full of breezy vocals and sunny instrumentation, this album redefines beach music for the new millennium.

Why these guys aren't considered as relevant, speaks volumes on our times. A great disc, period. Full Review »
