I'm a huge NATW fan, so I pre-ordered this album with high hopes. All their previous albums I've loved -- they're quirky, well-written, and all a bit different from each other, which is nice. I was quite disappointed with this purchase; the introduction and first track are quite good, as is 'Now is Exactly the Time' but the other tracks just scream bland. Lyrically and vocally, they're fine, but just nothing special, which is such a step down. I feel like this album is the outtakes from 'Last Night on Earth.' The tracks sound quite similar to those of the previous album, but without the road trip-essence. Overall, it's an alright album, but a huge step down from the previous three albums and a disappointment from such a great band.
