I like this CD loads. Just having it in my collection makes me feel all warm and tingly inside.
This is the first release of J Robbin's second band, after the sad demise of alternative monsters, Jawbox. It's an extention not only of the Jawbox-type sound, but also of Robbin's brilliant song writing capabilities. From the big rumble which is the beginning of Carnival, to the sing-a-long pop joy of Wheaton Calling, this is an album to live for.
Oh yeah, as well as the nice tangerine cover, they've also cut out a little bit which looks a bit like an aeroplane. How cool is that?

Although these musicians have been around for a while, they sound incredibly fresh and vital here. They manage to soothe and pummel in equal measure: the guitars are chunky but never ugly; poppy hooks abound. Despite the experimentation on display, most of the tunes can be memorized on first or second hearing. If you enjoyed the Pixies (whose quiet-quiet-loud structure crops up a lot here, particularly on "Scissoring") or if the idea of a poppier Fugazi appeals, you may like this.

All one can say is nothing. Sometimes the power of the music speaks for itself. The first decibell of this song and life once again makes sense. The harmonies spill bliss whilst the jagged guitars crush all hopes of an emo-core melt down of self-satisfaction by alluring to selfishness. Never stale and never losing your interest this album boasts classic whilst never uttering a word of contempt or pride. Classic. Just plain & simple. The sort of timeless music that uplifts you and is incidental to mood as all great albums are. WHAT MORE IS THERE 2 say. Compare i? Nothing can compare to it. Korn? Make my day! This is so real it blinds you. Say no more. As right said fred should have said "dont talk, just listen". KISS the music.
