    DISCLAIMER- please ignore my bad bad self conscious writing, this is a personal account, not a critical!

    SECONDLY- If you're missing tracks, ideally buy them from itunes, or the message board has most of them, if not I'm sure someone will be glad to help you out, but please don't ask me.

    Well, my (pretty much) favourite, and by far most played (1 Elle Milano- 2568, 2 Sunset Rubdown- 863) band of the past four years or so have split. Personally I think they are extraordinarily underrated & had nowhere near enough success & attention as they deserved.

It's my opinion that Elle Milano are the greatest and most talented new band around right now - bar none. So it's with a sigh of relief that I put on the debut of my favourite band, a record I feared might never have been released.

    Singer Adam M. Crisp is the perfect front man; on stage clearly pained and often appearing close to giving up, purposely ruining his own songs, amazing to watch. On record his dissatisfied frustration is harnessed into breath-taking emotion found in every song. …
