From the blindingly beautiful opener "On Fire" to the blistering punk/grunge of many of (co-writer)Lowenstein's numbers, this album just about covers every base in the lo-fi/U.S. indie book, and does it with style. If you're the kinda person who relishes the heart-on-your-sleeve tactics of Evan Dando, but also revels in the sheer adrenaline rush of two-minute punk-ish workouts, then this album comes very highly recommended.

After an album of excellence 'Bakesale' what can you do tobetter or equal it, you give us 19 songs and hope that it will make up for the small loss of quality from it's predecessor. The band give us Prince-s, Willing to Wait and Open Ended which are not bad songs full of power noise and guts but the other 15 or so drag them down. There may be something in here for everyone depending what you enjoy from a band, it's worth listening to try it then buy it.
