"They say I'm mental but I'm just confused
Thay say I'm mental but I've been abused
They say I'm mental 'cause I'm not amused by it all"

A comforting album for emotional misfits like myself, and a family favourite in my house.

10/10 songs: Beautiful Freak, My Beloved Monster, Susan's House

Best emo power pop alternative rock album of the year

"It's time I got back, it's time I got back
And I don't even know how I got off the track"

After an awesome opening song, some great to excellent songs build up to the two best songs as the centrepiece of the album, followed by some more great to excellent songs and a beautiful mellow closer. That is actually my favourite structure of an album and this is a near perfect example of that.

10/10 songs: The Good Life, El Scorcho
