    This album has been in rotation on my Ipod since I got it over a month ago. I never want to skip a song, it is a solid record all the way through, and that is quite rare. The album as a whole has so many surprises, switching from happy-go-lucky indie pop to heavy hitting driving guitars to a funny quirky circus like song to a beautiful piano instrumental.

You never know what to expect next which is something that I really love. I highly recommend this record to everyone, it's fun, it makes me happy, smile, feel good. A+++ Expand

  1. Alternately blissed-out and ragingly psychedelic, this debut is one of 2008's most promising records.
  2. The net result of The Uglysuit’s formula sounds something like an imagined pairing of Bedhead and Phish. It’s all right as far as it goes.
  3. The only thing the tracks have in common is the uncommon musicianship on display and the high-flying atmospherics that keep most of the album's mood adrift in the stratosphere.
