    It's genuine in its apery, controlled in its messiness, powerful in all aspects; a fun, nostalgic listen throughout.

    The reason this album is such a remarkable feat is because they've willingly entered some of the most tired territory in rock over the last decade and still manage to make it sound as fresh and exciting and invigorating as the first time you or anyone else you know heard music like this.

    Mr. Dream have mastered the tricks of alt-rock enough to play these sorts of formal games, but that isn't nearly as satisfying as when they push themselves outside of their wry, cynical comfort zone and hit upon something more nakedly emotional.

    It all feels like a celebration by believers--fresh-baked nostalgia with a shit-eating grin.
