    At first I thought that some of the tracks were filler tracks, but after multiple listens I've decided it is only because certain other songs are so strong on the album. While there are songs that people will undoubtedly pick out of the album to listen to more than others, a straight through listen of the album is exceptionally pleasing. There are never songs that distract from the overall experience other than to "wow" you. The lead singer has grown tremendously since Hold On Now, Youngster. While he used to have a much brighter sound, his vocals have matured and darkened as have his lyrics. I loved the first album but because of how bright it was, I could only take so many listens before I got a headache. It's hard to compare to the other albums as it is much different, but after multiple listens through I can safely say this is their best album yet. Expand

    Mature, reflective, elegant and just that little bit haunting, but ultimately and most importantly of all, brilliant.

    It's focused, punchy and beautifully poetic. [Dec. 2011 p. 129]

    It still is either very sincere or very sarcastic, or both, though these are two qualities which have always been both a justification for liking them and just as easily a reason why not, meanwhile not offering any amnesty or middle ground.
