Double-tracked vocals, occasional harmonies, and discordant guitars are punctuated by lightning-fast stops and angular bridges, allowing the band's raw emotion to be offset by genuinely interesting song structures and instrumentation. Deftly produced by Dave Feeny, the album sounds bright and well-defined, somehow evading the murkiness that many "heavy indie rock" recordings fall victim to.
