A friend introduced me to this album some years ago and I fell in love with it immediately. I bought the album as soon as I could get my hands on it, and also their second album ("Only Forever") when it came out. I saw the band play live a couple of times too and the music was as smooth live as it was from the studio.
The album is full of sweeping layers of beautiful music; track after track of incredible vocals supported by a powerful, but understated, guitar-based sound. My personal favourite is "I suppose" which rapidly became one of my favourite songs of all time.
If you like intelligent guitar-based music, you really should treat yourself to this.
