    Pretentious art-rock crap. A couple good songs ("Carrion", for example), but overall a waste of a great name. The emperor has no clothes.

  1. An enchanting, rhapsodic album of uncommon depth.
  2. 80
    As confusing as it is ultimately compelling. [#61, p.89]
  3. British Sea Power's slightly camp, wholly menacing, startlingly audacious debut is unlike anything you'll hear this year.
