This review is from: White Blood Cells (Audio CD)
This generally seems to take approximately two listenings-to, and then...well, if you have more than one CD drive (or something) in your CD player, it won't come out. Hopefully. Songs like Hotel Yorba and Fell In Love with a girl will hit you instantly, and so it's probably best to listen to those first, just to get accustomed to how the album's going to sound. We're Going To Be Friends is like The Moldy Peaches, but sounds more sincere and quite lovely, really. And there are the somewhat caustic, biting songs like I Think I Smell A Rat, where you'd really hate to be perceived as "one of those little kids (who) think you just know where it's at". Problems with society's perceptions and those within relationships are highlighted with I'm Finding It Harder To Be A Gentleman and The Same Boy You've Always Known. There's not a bad song on this album, they're brilliant live (Jack sings just as you think he would! Yeah!)->buy it! Go on!
