Let it grow.

This album is fantasic. I cannot wait until their next album comes out this year.
I'll admit that at first I only liked a few tracks. I found that the songs on the first half were good and then the album fizzled out towards the end BUT after listening to it through one day, something clicked and I realised just how amazing this album is.
Seriously, Let it grow on you. Not to be missed. Try listening to it in bed or while taking a walk through a forest.
So very very far from a 1 star rating!

If you give this CD a few listens it will reward. Full of songs that get under your skin and stay there. I wake up most mornings with a song off this CD stuck in my head, always a nice way to start the day.

I have to say this is the best album I have happened to stumble upon this summer. Seeing them live confirmed to how good this band is. They have a slight Crosby, Stills and Nash feel to them. Buy it you won't regret it!!!!

Turgid, derivative nonesense

I really can't understand the raves that album is getting; yes, I like the title but the music - no thanks!
It plods along (melodically enough I guess) like the blandest of ealry 70's rock; imagine Neil Young without the wit, the intelligence, the distinctive voice and any reason to make a record, and you'll just about get it.
However, so far as a recommendation goes, don't get it. There's lots more here that are better uses of your money.
As to all of the celebrity fans; find something better to promote guys!
