This is a good album....new wave alternative rock executed perfectly. It's not particularly original, but when you have an album full of songs this good.....who cares. You can hear all sorts of influences.....the killers, snow patrol, coldplay, feeder. Just great songs, great melodies, kick ass choruses. Singer had a great voice and the band are awesome. Why aren't these guys all over the radio? They should be.....and its only a matter of time. If you like any of the bands above then you will definitely like this. Best thing I've heard in a while. Reccommended.
