I think this album's worth is initially gauged by its singles, but honestly the songwriting is so solid all the way through, it feels like almost a disservice to jump around from song to song. It's a very pop-friendly album that somehow also feels most cohesive when you listen to the whole thing in one sitting. It's got some kinda charm.

Favorite Track: Strangers

While this record is a good sign of their progression as artists up to this point to a certain degree, it does show a beginning to a more pop sensibility that would later consume their discography. But besides that, it does have its remarkable highlights.

BEST TRACKS: Lola, Strangers, Rats, Apeman, This Time Tomorrow
