One of those albums that sounds influenced by Kid A, but brings something very unique as well. The combination of guitars and electronics on this album really create a definitive sound for these guys. The songs themselves are heavily detailed with some great and catchy hooks.

Favourite tracks: Pilot, Pick Up The Phone, Trashing Days, One With The Freaks, Neon Golden, Consequence
