Ok, I love the Waifs. I loved them since hearing their first album on a crappy cassette in Carney Ganly's truck in the NT, and even more after buying a copy of their second CD when I found them busking in Woolongong. I still like those early recordings, overflowing with the exuberance of youth, the best. They have certainly honed their skills in the intervening years, and each of their CD's over that time shows them evolving. This is more complex, more mature, and the influence of their time touring the US is discernible, but the spirit of the Waifs underlies every word and chord.

A grower, most definitely.............
To start with I wasn't sure, compared with A Brief History, it seemed a little flat, but after a couple of plays, I really liked it. It really is very good, some songs have so much to give. For instance, 'somedays' is a really soulful, deep song, 'Buffalo' is both funny and sad.
I am useless at describing songs, but this album is great!
