    Cold Showers uses that cavalier attitude behind such a simple bedrock of references--Joy Division (a song called "New Dawn" all but writes a countermelody to "Insight"), The Church, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Strokes, Interpol--that creates a level of tension across Love and Regret that sustains them far better than any of their peers.

    At times, the music is playing it a little too safe under the reverb. More dynamics or a bit more vastness in the sound might've elevated tracks like "New Dawn" and "Violent Cries".

    When Love and Regret sounds both old and new, both insanely derivative and sometimes transcendent, you can probably guess the rest: great introduction to a band.
