    simply nothing special. Another indie release that sounds like any other indie band, i'm really having trouble hearing the difference between them all they all sound the same to me.

    For a band sand to pride itself of individuality, most of this album sounds embarrassingly like the drumcrash-lonevocal interludes that pepper the more recent flaming lips releases. That's not to say it isn't interesting, just those were alway my least favourite parts of the recent flaming lips albums.

    This could be the second half of Menomena's debut. [Jan/Feb 2006, p.81]

    The combination of thundering drums with whimsical vocals and melodies can be charming, insanely catchy and headache-inducing, sometimes all at once. [Feb 2007, p.114]
  3. Friend and Foe follows through on the potential of their unique sound, proving their wildly great debut was no fluke.
