    Awesome, but doesn't finish off!

    This album would get 5 stars except it loses it's feel towards to the end and doesn't really finish off (which is annoying). The song's are also too similar to other artists. "Bury Me With It" sounds so much like 'The Pixies', "Float On" is really 'Talking Heads' and "The View" sounds 'Franz Ferdinandish'. But apart from that it is a great listen. "The world at large" is the best and a lovely song with meaning. You won't be disappointed with this album (particularly if you like the pixies)

    Sell out, no. Evolution, yes

    Ignor the flawed dialectic of the hipster dillettants and their tired battle cry of "they've sold out"(or see you on MTV) and give this a listen. Does the album have a little more production value to it? Yes. Is the sound a little fuller, dare it be said mature? Yes. Is the same insite, irony, and depth of understanding still there? YES! I'm not saying that we haven't all been burned by having a formally brilliant band come crashing to the ground in that inexorable dash to mediocrity. And who knows, it could still happen with MM. It is not the case here.
