Ted Leo and his pharmacist cohorts are musical geniuses. 'Hearts of Oak' is an extremely refreshing audio treat. The song 'Where Have All the Rude Boys Gone' is the most likely candidate for radio/tv play and is plum full of vocal adventures, hypnotizing guitar riffs, and an overall catchy sound. The entire album is solid, though you may have to allow it to grow on you. If you don't like it the first time through, give it a few more plays before you make up your mind. You won't be disappointed.

This album contains pretty much everything a fan could ask for - great hooks, great lyrics, variety - Ted Leo & the Pharmacists rarely disappoint. From the irresistable catchiness of "Where Have All the Rude Boys Gone?" to the great storytelling of "I'm a Ghost" to the slow, almost soulful guitar playing of "First to Finish, Last to Start" all contribute to make this album a winner, and a must-own.
