Of all this albums that came out in 2011, this was the best for me. The influence of post-punk and grunge bands like Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. is very apparent when listening to this record, nobody seems to be able to talk about Yuck without mentioning "who they sound like". Although their influences are clear, this record very much has it's own identity, Yuck don't get derivative, there's a modern indie-rock sensibility here that sets it apart from its ancestors. The big appeal of this album is how well the lo-fi, distorted, post-punk sound sits with the melodic vocals and rhythms, making this a very accessible record right from the first listen. The main album never feels boring or formulaic, thanks to the ability of the band to switch effortlessly from high-energy, punky songs like "Operation" to slower, introverted ballads like "Suicide Policeman". The album comes with a a B-Sides bonus CD, which is as worth owning as the main album itself, there's no shortage of creativity here.
