    this album is so brain destroying... sounds like tegan and sara sing with their noses pinched... extremely immature and annoying... perfect for any girl age 12-16... check out 1st and 2nd albums by this band and you will see how much this band has completely sold out... just like they said they would, in their own lyrics... "sign me up to sell me out"...

    Come on. Don't even pretend like this stuff is remotely creative.

    What IS there to like about this group? I mean, they could be worse, I suppose...but with grating vocals, repetitive song structures and ridiculously self-absorbed lyrics they could certainly be a lot better. Carrie Brownstein would shoot them one look and they'd melt into little puddles of power chords and bad haircuts.

  1. The key to 'So Jealous' is that it's a mall-prancing hit jukebox but with, y'know proper non-bubblegum pop sensibilities.

    An instantly loveable collection of sky-punching, new wave pop glory. [May 2005, p.117]
  3. Vocally weaving and ducking, they drag up memories of Voice of the Beehive, or a Siamese version of Susannah Hoffs from the Bangles. What stops them becoming an annoying pop hydra is their unadorned directness and sharp pop hooks.
