    Despite attempts at lyrical heft detailing a too-vague sexual awakening ("Sebastian") and an encomium for a friend ("Ghost Bike"), Ulicny undermines himself on a second-by-second basis by finding no lyric that can't be subjected to at least six different forms of contortion regardless of its content.

    This album is a carbon copy of Vampire Weekend, but you know how when Gus Van Sant remade Psycho shot for shot and it was rubbish? It's like that.

    It's not so much that the songs lack shape, it's that this suggests Reptar lack conviction – every song borrows from something else, something vaguely similar but different enough to make this an incoherent mess, albeit one with oddball pretensions.

    Really awesome album. Tracks 6 and 12 are a little stale, but still listenable. Most of these songs have weird structures. So, they are notReally awesome album. Tracks 6 and 12 are a little stale, but still listenable. Most of these songs have weird structures. So, they are not just your typical party rock group.

    Tracks 8 and 10 are probably my favorite for the way they develop.
