Customer Review

on 7 June 2003
As a jaded 30 something, it is a very pleasant surprise to discover that the latest NY band are, unlike certain others one could mention, worth every ounce of hype they've received.
The majority of the album rocks like nothing since the Pixies. The half-snarling, half-pouting singer, the barrage of sound that the guitarist manages to create (the Devil alone knows how), the drummer maintaining such a taut rhytmn without the add of a bassist.
Then they astonish further with the instant classic Breeders-esque alt-power ballad "Maps" (the song Elastica never quite succeeded in making), and "Modern Romance", where the singer suddenly morphs into Nico...
Basically, the best rock album so far this millennium, that's all
