Thank god someone gave these kids a good spanking and told them “if you want people to enjoy your music, you have to actually make it sound nice”. Everything sounds so much more as if someone actually put thought in it. The songwriting isn’t as repetitive and hyperactive as the music, which makes it less of a problem that the music still is.

Chaotic, bouncy, and fun. Way ahead of its time, a pioneer of the neo-psychedelic movement. Very refreshing.

I can tell it needs repetitive listening to appreciate it more, but I feel like there's more rewarding stuff that takes a lot of listening to get.

Fun, psychedelic indie record. I'll admit I don't quite get the hype but there are fantastic moments of explosive choruses and catchy tunes that this was a fun listen.

Looking to discover great albums from 2009 I naturally checked this out and yes it’s pretty good, the opening track “ In The Flowers” is my favourite track. This genre of music isn’t in my wheel house unfortunately & having listened to this album twice I won’t be returning , however I’ve added “ In The Flowers “ to a playlist of great songs

Sounds like a computer vomited on a pop boy band -- but, like, in a good way

One of the most amazing and unique albums I've ever heard. I highly recommend giving it repeated listens. The first time I heard it I was not a fan, but now it has grown to be one of my favorite albums of all time.

Almost sounds like the Beach Boys in an odd way. A decent album, lovely to have on in the background. By no means mindblowing, but a nice mix of Beach Boys esque harmonies, modern sounding synth and decent enough lyrics.
