Of all the bands to emerge in the New York post-punk scene, Hamilton Leithauser might just have the most emotive and powerful vocals. His massive range and idiosyncratic rasp propels this album towards greatness. Not that it's a one-man show. The music isn't anything groundbreaking -- it's just really good garage rock, successfully suiting a number of speeds and moods. Plus "The Rat" is a preposterously good song that emphatically deserves its place on best-of-the decade lists.
