It's like if The Cranberries were trying to be hip and cool with the kids, except they couldn't finish any of their damn songs.

Too much similar tracks, basic indie rock songs, too short/too many tracks. Frankie cosmos is becoming particulary uninterested and predictible. She needs to take more time and another direction.

Another directionless indie splurge by Frankie Cosmos. Rather an improvement on the indie splurge she released last year though. A little more pillowy and smoother on the ears.

It's just a lack of willingness to experiment and interesting songwriting that puts me off.
