Who’s going to break it to the OP that his chances of winning this year’s ‘Setting the Album Club on Fire’ award are pretty much zero? Tragic.
I had a listen and I enjoyed it. Though my attention did wander a bit towards the end. It’s melodic and intelligent pop. Quite 70s feeling. At times (especially the opening track) it does sound Shins-esque. The opening track remains the best.
A perfectly decent album, if nothing extraordinary. And even if it’s not exactly ancient, still sounds good today.
