    The only sleight against it is that it's fairly derivative–as much as the band members might deny it, their fast, female vocal-driven sound is, at times, a little reminiscent of trendy pop punk acts like Paramore.

    Its debut had a rawness that this album lacks. Nonetheless, these songs, especially "Dead Oaks" and the gorgeous "School Friends" comprise a winning collection of emotional songs about relationships, romantic and otherwise. [#40, p.78]

The vocal fuse with lightAlthough the Now, Now's album - "Threads" does not present any new solutions, this CD is very nice in reception. The vocal fuse with light melodies and in effect - listening to songs such as "But I Do" or "School Friends" you can get little dreamy . So it'll be no lethargic through whole album, band also presents the vibrant songs - "Magnet", "Prehistoric". Expand
