A return to better days?
on 22 February 2004
This album is very satisfying for me. I loved 'Something to write home about', and although 'On a wire' had it's fans, I was never really one of them. This album is faster, more upbeat, and catchier. They've obviously put a lot of thought into the song structures, and the album contains some brilliant build ups to some memorable choruses. Some of the songs remind of days where songs such as 'Red letter day' and 'Central standard time' stayed in my stereo. There are some nice harmonies, some nice intros, and general nice songs all round. My faourites were 'Martyr me' and 'The one you want'.
Basically, buy this if you're a Get up kids fan of any shape or size, whether you liked 'On a wire' or hated it, I think this album will become the classic that everyone heralded STRHA as.
