Believe the hype!
I, like a lot of people who will be checking out this album, had only previously heard "Let's Dance to Joy Division." When I heard this I immediately loved it. Then I went to see The Enemy and The Wombats were supporting them. They are a brilliant live band and songs such as "Lost in the Post" and "Kill The Director" really stood out, even thought I had only ever heard them live that one time.
I bought the album the day it came out and haven't stopped listening since! Personally I think the standout tracks are:
Let's Dance to Joy Division
Kill The Director
Lost in The Post
and the brilliant Moving to New York.
The catchy tunes and great lyrics (this is another song about a gender I'll never understand) make this a great album and, despite being pretty mainstream indie, does have that little bit extra to make it standout as one of the true great debut albums.
