I bought this album initailly after a Sunset rubdown gig. I was blown away by the sound the band made.
Being able to listen several times to songs and hear the lyrics clearly; having time to process the content and the sound together has been a revelation.
The feelings that are elicited from this record are the feel of the Pixies in their Dolittle pomp, Arcade Fire, prog and a whole bunch of other things.
I bought a second copy for my wife as she would listen over and over to it in her car coming home from work. A fabulous sound and engaging lyrics. A best album of the year for me.
