3 stars 3.5 stars. I wasn't sure if I should give Effloresce 3 or 4 stars, so I decided to round down, although this is still a good album.

Effloresce is a good debut by the band Oceansize. The only problem I find with the album is that I think the second half of the album is stronger than the first half. There are no bad songs from the first half, but none that stand out in particularly for me except for "One Day All This Could Be Yours." The second half of the album is where there are some great songs. My favorite song on the album is "Women Who Love Men Who Love Drugs." The three guitars are at their best throughout this track. I also really enjoy "Unravel," "Saturday Morning Breakfast Show," and "Long Forgotten."

Overall, I would say Effloresce is a good debut album for Oceansize. It's definitely worth having, but the album could be stronger at points in my opinion.
