When I worked on my crappy college radio show, there were a tonne of indie bands that sounded like Built to Spill. Is that why I don't find this album that interesting?

The best thing one can do is mine the BTS catalogue and 'Keep It Like A Secret ' is another gem to uncover . The tracks here are more concise than previous releases creating a more accessible / punchy listen

Barring "Else" every track here is outstanding and classic BTS

Whilst "You Were Right" quoting Pink Floyd , Marley , Led Zep , Kansas ..... just to name a few plus the 8 minute "Broken Chairs" (with cool whistling section) are modern classics and 2 of the best ever BTS tracks

High , highly recommended album

'Keep It Like A Secret ' should not be kept a secret

While not being as good as their 2 previous efforts, it still manages to get me so excited. 8.4/10.

May not be the epic classic that Perfect From Now On was, but it is more fun.

Some years ago a friend and I spent several summers climbing all seventeen county highpoints in Nevada. To reach all these, we had to do a lot of driving on bumpy dirt roads through the desert. Fortunately for us, we had two artists we both liked listening to: Neil Young and Built to Spill. Riding in my old Nissan Pathfinder, this was the album we listened to more than any other. These tight, intensity-building songs, which never seem to end up anywhere near the place they started, were the perfect soundtrack to hikes that followed a similar trajectory. Opening tracks, and the opening to opening tracks, don't get much better than "The Plan."
