    Nevermind my previous comment, I've come to discover all the deep content beneath those layers of seemingly cheerful flok. Don't let yourself be fooled by the daft ukuleles, these guys talk about some serious stuff. But the cover is still hideous.

    Before I listened to this album, I read all the comments.. wasn't sure what to expect, really good. Pretty consistent as well!

    Not a huge fan. The sadness is beautiful in their latest.

    Oh. My. Goodness. I guess they're the "do-it-yourself" kind of band and I respect it, but this is the worst cover I've ever seen. MS Paint is only excused if you're a group of 14 year olds playing on weekends for fun, not a band that wants to be taken seriously. Anyway, the album itself sounds a bit of a joke sometimes. Thank god they made TFDoS afterwards.

    I've listened to this CD so many flipping times, haha. I love every song very very much. And although I do like it, people need to look at different songs than 5 Years Time. Because that's just one amazing song of eleven (Or twelve, depending on where you purchased the CD).
