  • Summary: The San Francisco post-punk band's second album follows five years after their debut.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 10 out of 14
  2. Negative: 1 out of 14
  1. An addictive and immersive debut album.
  2. Film School isn't breathtakingly original, but it is well made.
  3. This is not a band on the cusp of something new and spectacular. It's a very good repackaging of what other new, spectacular bands have used to create their identities.
  4. A perfectly enjoyable and to-the-point album that leans heavily on influences like the Cure and My Bloody Valentine.
  5. At times, Film School achieve a foggy, grandiose psychedelia, but their compositions aren't always as shimmering as their production.

    A dreary debut. [Feb 2006, p.74]
