    Scratch that, This Is A Business is amazing! Time To Die has also grown on me

    terribly underrated album. agreed, it's not their best but still, why are people hating so much on it? If it weren't for This Is A Business and A Time To Die, it would be definitely higher on my favourite album list.

    Fables is one of the best songs i've heard in a long time. just give me somewhere to drive with the windows down in summer or fall and this song playing on repeat and i'll be happy. i really need to check out the rest of the album, although the few other songs i've heard i enjoy.

    All the songs on this album are great, yet it just doesn't have that "album" feel....Like it's a greatest hits CD, except all the material is new. I think that's why most people can't grasp onto it like with Visiter.

    You need to see them perform some of these songs live. It will blow your mind and you will see the urgency and meaning you aren't grasping right now. I'd also recommend having a lyrics sheet in hand when listening to some of these songs. It isn't as easily likeable as Visiter or Beware of the maniacs but it grows on you and is a worthy addition to the dodos discography.

    Their first two were so great. That production subdues it to the point of comatose. The two things this group had going for them were those killer beats, and Meric Long's prominent voice. Both have been relatively "streamlined" on this record and I am not happy about that.

    You can notch this one up with Wooden Arms by Patrick Watson and It's Frightening by White Rabbits as the most crushing dissapointment of 2009.

    i saw them play these songs live and they were just ok. when they played red and purple and fools thats when things were good.

    I'm surprised by all the negativity. This album is awesome. More mellow than Visiter, but better, I'd say.
