Fantastic review...only because you agree with me. =P This is my favorite album of the year, thus far. I honestly cannot stop telling people about it.

I'm really loving this record. It surprised me, I need to check out their older stuff.

One of my favorite records of the year. Said it before, and I will say it again: it's this year's Dog Problems.

That's high praise but to an extent I agree. A friend of mine quoted it as, "Dog Problems but really weird." Pretty much sums it up haha

The band has a lot in common with the Format now more than ever. Blame it on working in fun. I guess, but this record in particular reminds me of them. It's exactly what intelligent pop music should be!

Wow. That's bold. I got the album, but have yet to get into it. With a comment like that I know I'll dig it.

I feel like the band's finally reached their full potential with this album. They've grown a lot and it shows in the best way possible.

Excellent review and album! As of right now, it's safe to say that this is my album of the year. So so good.

Great album. Jack dated Scarlett Johanson? Nice.

He mentions her in a few songs on Twilight Tales and I feel like part of I Feel Weird was about her. I believe he's currently dating Alia Shawkat of Arrested Development. Lucky man.

I didn't realize this album was self-released. I'll definitely be purchasing it. I would've preordered it if I had realized it was a self-release.

Oh yes!

Prop to them for self-releasing this one. This one is a perfect follow up to Trampoline.

I want this so bad. I've never listened to this band, but I've heard nothing but great things about this album.

Tostitos 07/01/10 03:21 PM

absolutely love some of the tracks on this record, but as always some filler. But considering they now have more then a enough great material to play a long set I'm happy.

Keagan Ilvonen 07/01/10 03:28 PM

Greg, you dog you. Fucking awesome job. Album is a huge step up from the last. One of the biggest sleeper pop albums of the year.

Nate has rubbed off on Jack and it's oh so sweet.
