  • Summary: The first and only album by the Scottish/American indie-pop band, which broke up before the album was released.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. At any rate, having jabbed at indie success and scored at least one good hit, the band and its sole record--comprising just over twenty minutes of music--will surely be remembered for its insistent, unselfconscious songs as well as its endless playability.
  2. It's painful that this will be the only Royal We record ever. Many of the band's members moved on to other quite good bands (Sexy Kids, Bricolage, Correcto), but the chemistry they had as the Royal We will be hard to replicate.
  3. There’s charm here, but it’s mostly second-hand, photos from a party you didn’t go to.
  4. This slight, shrill and, ultimately, underwhelming debut album has its moments.
