    what makes a "murky tone" "subversive"??? mowon. anyway, this band used to be amazing, but everything they put out after "stay what you are" is either awful or totally unimpressive. get the first three albums, forget the rest

  1. It may take multiple spins for a few songs to really find their footing with fans, but those people will surely be rewarded handsomely in the end.
  2. Chris Conley's juvenile lyrics and whiney vocal tone submerge the band's music.

    Under the Boards, finds [Conley] in a surprisingly dark and newwavish mode, bobbing through spare, angular arrangements that overemphasize the off-key bleat that's his albatross as much as the band's signature.
