I enjoyed Dogrel, but this album did not draw me in as that one did. There were only two songs that I enjoyed (06) Oh Such A Spring / 09) I Was Not Born). It wasn’t a bad album, but it felt more like a collection of lesser tracks on a good album. If I didn’t enjoy the band so much, I may have scored it lower, but it also may require more listens to appreciate.

What a fantastic album. I love when songs can change midstream and still be consistent with what came before; an example of this is St. Vincent’s Pills. Many tracks alter themselves but become something fresh and exciting to listen to. By the third track, I was already deciding that this album was a nine if the rest held up as quality. Not every song reached this level, but none were bad or fell below an eight for me. It was continuously revitalizing and interesting. The voice reminded me ... read more

This is my favorite band to come out in the last decade. Their music is vibrant and raucous and audacious and loud, and it is obvious that they don’t care about anyone’s opinion of them. It is in one’s face and I love the music and lyrics. This to me is what punk music sounds like.

I say this with all honestly that this album really made me deep down happy. It is vibrant and lively while a bit of whinging about class differences. The longest song is 3:34, and half are under three minutes. I wasn’t crazy about the last two songs; otherwise, excellent.
