4 stars To say this is a bit of a change of sound from their previous album is an understatement. With The Why Album, Cheer-Accident show their other side and go fully pop with this one...... Uncharacteristically straightforward pop. But not to worry, as this is up to the standard of their best releases, and I'll explain:

It's very well written. Thymme & Co can really write an infectious melody, extremely catchy and fun to sing along to, and the songs never get boring or overstay their welcome and are interesting enough to keep my attention. Perfect...... Although things can get a little too sweet and cheesy occasionally, like the song 'Postscript' for example, and this is the element that kept me from fully enjoying this album for a while, but I eventually got used to it and now that's not really much of a problem.

Overall this album is very good. Performances are top notch as always and a different bassist helped the sound considerably, no super fuzz here! Those seeking avant-prog within the Cheer-Accident discography should look elsewhere. Don't ignore this one though, it's still good.

Favourite tracks: 'Sub Herbs', 'Today Today Today', 'Driving a Nail With a Clock', 'Where You Are'.
