Pleasantly Surprised. Short and sweet, liked it better than Painting With, was more chill and not so claustrophobic, thought Goalkeeper was the best track.

This album is fine. Consistent, sometimes really fun, never too bad, but never really innovative or exciting.

Pretty close to the perfect 5 piece guitar rock album.

Occasionally pretty, occasionally great melodies, some thought-provoking lyrics, but a lot of vagueness, lots of repetition, dark, new-wave Depece Mode beats that don't really develop. I mean, it's okay.

Two haunting, ominous pieces of ambient music, changing slowly and ever so subtly to morph into ever darker and more twisted soundscapes. Would recommend if into Empty Bliss Beyond This World.

I reviewed in college for the Rice Thresher and now write for the Berkeley B Side. Indie rocker at heart, though fan of all genres (except metal).
