I’m So Alone is a really cool song because it starts off simple but keeps building and getting faster. It’s like it has 3 separate sections which makes for one cool song. Distress is more reggae-tinged, and really shows off how evocative Chuck’s vocals are. Cup O’ Tea is a very fun little song, just done and over with. The Bell Tower has a great horn riff and there is a great rhythm that the vocals follow.

No Sé is alright, not a great song but I appreciate them trying some interesting things. Crew Cut Chuck is the same way, some nice experimentation but not a great song. Goleta is an okay little song, not much to it. Big Brother is fairly fun, even if the intro seems very generic. L.G.’s is a pretty nice song.

Polyester Khakis is an alright song but the lyrics are very off putting. Preppie Girl is the meanest song on the album but it’s also a heck of a lot of fun. Mum’s The Word is a really cool short song, love the lyrics. Sad Reggie is another more reggae based song, and while I like this song it does go on a bit too long. This album overall has a couple strong songs, but the band just isn’t refined quite yet.

Final Rating: 7/10
