    My favourite lc! album, different to their previous two albums in that the sound is more beefed up, but still contains the signature lc! sound and lyrics.

    One of my favorite albums. Great lyricism. Catchy music and lines and great and appropriate dissonance. The growth of this band gets me exciting for their upcoming album.

    Romance, their third album in 24 months, is more slickly assured -- and far less twee -- than its predecessors.
  2. Romance Is Boring doesn't eschew the sugar-high, too-clever angst of its predecessors altogether, but the band have learned how to vary their song structures, often opting for a darker, more atmospheric aesthetic.
  3. Romance may be boring, but this ambitious triumph is anything but. [Feb 2010, p.96]
