    Though a lot more accesible than "Medeiros" and "Hope and Adams" Wheat's new album isn't just a regular pop album. They may not have done it as succesfully as Modest Mouse did with their "Good News For People Who Love Bad News", but they have proved that it's not entirely necessary to follow all indie rules to make a good album. I still prefer their more melancholic sound, Though a lot more accesible than "Medeiros" and "Hope and Adams" Wheat's new album isn't just a regular pop album.

  1. Per Second is the perfect combination of mainstream and alternative in one handy package.
  2. "Per Second..." finds Wheat in the midst of an identity crisis, attempting to balance largely superb songs with an exasperating presentation.

    Wheat adopt a new, far breezier musical style for their first release since 1999. [#23, p.112]
