Not their best work, however, it feels to be a much more mature Thank You, Happy Birthday. It includes very good songs along with some stragglers keeping it from being really good or even great.

This album is a good example of the "Good Average Album."

Somewhat disappointed with this album, after hearing their first album Language & Perspective. Although it was not as good as their first, it was still a very good effort.

A pleasant surprise! Bad Suns, IMO, are one of the only indie rock bands who can produce an overall good album, rather than 5 good songs and 5 decent/bad songs. They stay consistently good throughout the entire album. There was no point, while I was listening to the album, where I felt they could have done much better.

My Rating - 80/100 (Very Good)

I enjoyed this album more than my rating would suggest. In my head I want to say this is a very good album, but do to some songs that didn't live up to the others, I could only give this album the notion of being "Good." Thus, here is my rating:
