[Anonymous]Nov 9, 2006One of the best this year. A constantly fun and interesting listen. "Swans (Life After Death)" is one of the best songs this year.

Jogging Gorgeous Summer, Don't Call Me Whitney Bobby and Rough Gem will make your spring brilliant.… Expand
CircuitRiderJun 30, 2006Im not sure what some people are talking about.. the production value is fine, the loose feel of the band lends itself stylistcally to their carribean influences (not to mention Modest Mouse impersonation on track 1). Track 10 serves as a nice balance to all the overly upbeat tracks. I would say melodically this album borrows from Paul Simon much more than Billy Joel.. but whatever...Overall a nice effort.… Expand
ChrisWJun 18, 2006A Little too adventurous, it's like they are trying too hard to find their niche. Track #10 is horrible! Others pass by questioning... Why?
