Some really nice tunes... it's not a Made in the Dark, though.

This is a family-oriented album in the sense that a lot of songs deal with love of family ("brothers"), friends, family pets ("alley cats") and lovers ("one life stand"). It's a very positive-sounding album, as best stated on their great closing track "take it in": "my heart has flown to you just like a dove / it can fly ... please take my heart and keep it close to you / take it in ...". Recommended if you like: pet shop boys, lcd soundsystem, !!!, phoenix.

I remember last year I listened to this a few times, and then at the end of the year I went to go pull out the singles I wanted, and it turned out it was my fifth most listened to album in 2010. How did this happen? I barely even remember listening to it. But then I went through the songs and found that I really enjoyed over half the tracks. I think it snuck up on me because this is a much more mellow outing than their previous album, which literally told you to put your headphones on in the second track and then made love to your ears for the next hour. This is just as enjoyable, but way more relaxing. Outside of the title track, the other standouts are Thieves in the Night, Brothers, and Take It In. Also of note is the music video for I Feel Better. Seriously, what in the blue hell? Anyway, enjoyable album - thumbs way up.

I enjoyed listening to it but despite all compliments like consistency, bravery of shifting music style or mellow songs, the conclusive point is that there isn't any big deal about the album.
