What a truly outstanding album this is. I have had this record for over two years now and it still sounds as fresh,exciting and uplifting as the day I bought it and is still a regular fixture on my CD player. And to think that based on the advice of several RBF fans, I very nearly didn't buy it! Ignore the people that don't want a band to stretch and grow, and the too-cool-for-school elitists that accuse them of selling out and just enjoy the band's best music to date. This album is full of energy, catchy hooks and great melodies. Highlights include the wonderfully sarcastic title track, "I Think Somebody Loved Me Once" with it's beautiful intro that gives way to a wonderful brass and guitar stomp, the haunting "Where Have You Been?" & the excellent "A Little Doubt Goes A Long Way" which comes complete with a snatch of Paul Simon's Gracelands album and it's own insanely addictive refrain. Buy this album now as if you like;punk,ska,pop and/or rock there is something for you in this modern classic.
