This album changed my life and encourages me to discover music. Each song on the album is a manifestation of the genius of young people who changed Indie Rock forever.

On this record, all musicians were the best in the world and the rest only just watched.

There is no point in exchanging the best songs, since everyone is a classic of this genre.

So fresh, so addictive, so powerful, so direct, so passionate, so irresistible.
Absolute joy.

One of the most extremely solid debuts from the early 2000s, with punch instrumentation, vibrant vocals and strong and powerful lyrics. It's extremely tight, perhaps to the point of exhaustion, but it's worth it for the exciting ride.

Favorite Jams: Pioneers, Banquet, Helicopter

Lest Favorite: Blue Light
