What's the fuss about? A generic, run-of-the-mill, alt/pop offering.

The original and best pot-punk revival album. A true classic with a fantastic mix of fast angular rock and drawn out atmospheric post-punk.

Stunning debut album, almost a mix of Joy Division and Television but Paul Banks' vocals truly help this album stand on its own merits

Wish I would have been older around this time, the new indie revival at the beginning of the zeroes. As a 7-year old boy, I kind off missed the time when those band really made fantastic music...

Favorite tracks' Obstacle 1, NYC, Stella was a diver and she was always down

SOOO much better than Antics, you can distinguish each song from one another, and the band chemistry is crazy. Great drumming too. Track ratings for this album are dead on too.

Good stuff but little variation across the artist's oeuvre. As a single, isolated album I enjoy this.

Begins very strongly with some well crafted songs, but as the album progresses it starts getting pretty repetitive and it becomes difficult to distinguish the songs from one another. The guitar lines are never too dynamic and are almost entirely made up of a consecutive crapload of eighth notes.

There are some similarities with the Strokes, except here the songs feel a lot sadder, which is not necessarily a bad thing. There might be some Smiths influences, as well as Television. Obstacle 1 sounds like a short, modern version of Marquee Moon, and both songs are great.

The album might grow on me, but for now I can only say it's not bad, and that the first half is pretty great. I can't say the same for the second half.

This is a good album, but it doesn't seem special or memorable enough to warrant top 100 to me
