Beautiful and relaxed surf rock inspired album right here. A melancholic coming of age album with some lyrics that both offer hope and take it away all the while lamenting the fact that innocence must be lost and young love must fade. Despite the fact that the album's concept isn't original, it manages to avoid cliche and has the power to really hit home. Fantastic album all around.

From Tilly
Growing up ain’t easy. Not even for rich college kids. And it seems our boys have had their hearts handed to them once or twice since their shimmering debut. There is a haze of melancholy that hangs over this album. Plus, the crisp pace and immediacy of the debut is traded in for a more lazy, nonchalant sound as the songs take a decidedly more leisurely approach to their destination. They've expanded their sound a bit too it seems and started dosing on a steady diet of kiwi rock as well which fits in well with their other jangle pop influences. Besides the songs being a bit more consistent on this one, both albums are excellent and complement each other nicely.

Grade: A. As Daydreamer recently pointed out, this is quite a different album from their debut. More spacious, pensive and considerably slowed down from the preppy, assured jangle pop of their debut. I can’t really decide which one I like best as they are both excellent and I’d even say essential modern jangle pop. I’m going to flip a coin and put this one slightly ahead of the debut, but I now consider their debut an essential Real Estate album since it does have such a different sound.

They clearly perfect the jangle pop style here.

I slept on them for a long time because I knew there was nothing new that I was going to find in them, but novelty doesn't make or break music. It's just a bunch of very relaxing and very straightforward indie songs, but there's nothing wrong with that. Positive reviews tend to praise the chemistry between the vocals and guitar, and that is definitely something that does stand out.

Like many of the dream-pop bands of their ilk Real Estate make albums where no particular song radically departs from the other. Instead, Days Byrdsian jangle prefers to paint an evocative all-encompassing mood. That being said each song has it's merits playing it's part in the rich tapestry intricately woven by the band.
