Interestingly I have had some quite extreme reactions from some of the people who I have spoken to about this record. I think it never helps when a band gets well known via an over-played advert (Intel used `Ice Cream' for one of their adverts) but I really rate this record. For a change I actually think the more interesting tracks are at the end of the record then the start where they break away from the Blondie, nu-wave type sound.
NYPC produce some nice neat songs and clearly have listened to a lot of different sources to produce modern smart pop. They remind me a little of a cleaner sounding CSS. I believe their live performances can leave a little to be desired. We shall see.
