  1. It's the best electronic indie-pop debut since Ben Gibbard last tuned his laptop.

    Weathervanes' intriguing, thought-provoking lyrics and concept-album nature-it's about a boy who falls in love with a girl ghost-make it a literate-pop gem.

    By the time things conclude with mannerly closer "The Great Estates" it's been made perfectly clear that this is a band ready and able to create visions with enveloping scope and delightful articulation.

    Good ol indie pop, average album here. Not bad for a debut album they have a few highlights here like Generator ^ 2nd Floor and Hannah. Good band some good songs here, re-playable, sharable. Not breaking any boundaries here. Postal Service fans who are too good for Owl City, will love this album. Full Review »
