2 stars This album has 4 solid songs on it. But unfortunately, the rest of the album is noisy and boring for me. They are a good band, and they could be great, but they dont really pull it off here, due to the excess of random noises and bleeps and blurs.....

The majority of the album sounds messy and it frustrates me. However, tracks 1, 2, 3, and 9, are fantastic songs, hinting at the potential of this interesting band.

I'll look forward to all of their future releases (i still haven't checked out Frances the Mute) and I'm sure eventually, they will drop a fantastic album. This album however, is not the one.

I recomend downloading tracks 1,2,3, and 9. if you really like them, you MIGHT like the rest of the album, but if not, you saved yourself cash.
