    One of the best albums of the year, hands down. One of the few bands that can deliver equally in both their live performances and recorded content. Great to see that the critics agree.

    Even if the songs seem to be quiet harmless, this album is pretty impressive. How Real Estate creates beautiful melodies with two guitars and a bass without any sound effects, is incredibly awesome. One of my favourite albums and one of my favourite bands too.

  1. Real Estate is a remarkable debut, and I really look forward to more from this band in the future, please, which will undoubtedly be soon in some form or another.
  2. Real Estate’s sound is imbued with the same sentimentality as the rest of the indie class of 2009, but with zero ambition.
  3. Despite the summery song titles and the beach balling associations that might follow these guys around, this music transcends the notion of seasons.
