Review this album
MusicMavenSep 27, 2005It's not terrible, but hardly lives up to it's critical reputation. It's just too diffuse -- I'd probably still own it if it had one or two undeniable classics replacing the meandering instrumentals and half-formed songs. As it stands, most of the album simply isn't very memorable.
NabihaH.Jul 11, 2007I agree with Eric...it's good background music, but that's about it. It's not the least bit memorable - not at any point did I think, wow, I really like this song. It was okay for one listen, but I don't see myself going back. I don't see how this album has such great reviews. It's not bad...it's just not good, either.
MarkCJul 23, 2003A mix of boring instrumentals and a few good indie and pop songs. They don't do their post-rock upbringings any justice on this album.
EricC.Jun 27, 2007I'd hate to disagree with such a huge fan base, but I just can't bring myself to enjoy these guys as much as The New Pornographers or The Arcade Fire. I know people will disagree with me, but this cd is just too bland to remember.
