    Critically underrated. One of those great, joyful, sparse, delightfully messy indie rock albums. They remind me of Harlem Shakes, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and Wave Machines. Try this album and enjoy.

  1. By focusing inwards, Born Ruffians have done that whole 'maturing' thing that us reviewers like to talk about, and created a much improved piece of art.
  2. ‘Say It’ recalls the airy refreshment of Vampire Weekend’s ‘Contra’ and the garage-pop fun of Jonathan Richman’s ‘Rock’N’Roll With The Modern Lovers’.
  3. Much of the material sounds rushed and half-finished, like a high schooler trying to write a research page paper during his lunch period.
