This album rules so much. The best running/exercise music. I put it on repeat all day, work, driving, partying.

One of my favorite records of 2014. I liked their last LP, but they really sound best when they're making upbeat, electric stuff versus lo-fi acoustic bits.

However, I have no idea why every reviewer and their mother keeps comparing this record to Morrissey/The Smiths. Similar guitar tone to Johnny Marr at times, I kinda get that, but Barry doesn't sound anything like Morrissey and his lyricism doesn't get anywhere near as witty and self-deprecating.

Falling in Love Again is my early favourite. Such a good song.

Overall I really like the record. The more punk songs really pack a punch and the more mid-tempo ones have this really cool atmospheric sound to them.

It's just an awesome record all around.

This album rules. "Schley" and "Catalina Fight Song" are the jams.

I can't believe these guys are a pop-punk band and I haven't heard of them until now. I must be living under a rock or something.

What is it these days about 1-2 minute songs and 20-25 minute albums? The album sounds good but (for me) it's another example of feeling rushed.

that's fair - I wasn't trying to imply that Barry is a Morrissey clone, but I just feel like this record was inspired by that style of music and he put a Morrissey-esque spin on his observations of mundane everyday life.

Mmmmm this record is exactly what the doctor ordered. Nice review, Drew- this should most definitely be making an appearance on EOTY lists (including mine).
