If you're hoping for the instant gratification and accessibility of 'Light Up Gold' and 'Tally...' then you will be disappointed. On first listen I was disappointed, but I stuck with it and now I absolutely LOVE this album. From the opening brace of punk inflected rockers 'Bodies...' and 'Black & White' to the slow and purposely repetitive 'She's Rolling' and 'Instant Disassembly' this record is a grower and a keeper. The title track, which at first sounded virtually unlistenable to my ears has grown into my favourite track on the album, Parquet Courts have expanded their palate very successfully with this record and I can't stress enough just how good it is.
