  • Our Earthly Pleasures is 100x better than this and one of my favourites of all time. This is so badly produced it hurts and to me they're just a two-bit 2000's indie band with a Geordie singer.
  • I really like this album, very much. :)
  • Their best album!
  • one of the best debuts ever
  • Oh man, long time no listen. Great album! I wish I was 14 again...
  • My Soundtrack to World Cup .
  • it's taken me far too long to realise how brilliant this album is
  • One of my favourite albums. Lyrics blow my mind
  • Upon reconsideration, this album is amazing. Bought this wayy back in early 2005, got a bit bored of it in the intermittent years, probably because they were releasing loads of generic bullshit from their next album, but yes this is great
  • I love the drums, its something about the drums and the lyrics, this album is one of the best alt rock albums of recent times.
