    Definitely not as good as the first but its not without its merits. lyrics are still gold, music is now stale

    Where the first album was both musically fresh and lyrically hilarious, this album seems a bit...been there, done that. Instead of a must-listen in the heady glow of discovery, this album is more of a brown bag, dark room, close the curtains affair. You don't want to to tell your friends, who thought the first album was great and rocked side-by-side with you at their live shows, how Where the first album was both musically fresh and lyrically hilarious, this album seems a bit...been there, done that.

You don't want to to tell your friends, who thought the first album was great and rocked side-by-side with you at their live shows, how disappointed you are in their second offering, so you'll try desperately to keep it to yourself that you actually paid good money for another round of less-than-the-same.

    Who is this guy, Rex Harrison? He speak-sings! That said, People In Love is amazing. I can't stand it anymore, but only because I listened to it about 500 times in a row.

  1. It all adds up to something lovably unpretentious – and pretty unique.
  2. One trick pony's they may arguably be, but they've done the same trick twice and pulled it off.

    Idiosyncratic yet entertaining guitar-based pop. [22 Jun 2007, p.69]
