NO, it's pretty bad. It was a big let down after their first EP, which was good. So buy the EP, then the album.

it's ok. Good if you can get it on sale.
The only 3 memorable tracks for me were "Maps" , "Y Control", "Modern Romance".

"Maps" is such a pretty song. I thought it was Cat Power when I first heard it.

I think it's good but I know nothing about the technical aspect of music.

I'll put in a vote of yes...I didn't like it before I saw them live, but it really grew on me afterwards...probably would have anyway I guess.

i don't remember exactly what the lyrics are which is good

it's seriously the only song I can think of where the lyrics bother me that much that i hate the song


haha, i love that part.

to each his own.

fever to tell is enjoyable to chew over but not to savour. a lot of date with the night video was filmed in my student union, which they rocked until it toppled over. fun but nowhere near the beauty of sp.

it's awesome. there's usually no security gap between stage and audience, so you can basically scream out song names and they usually react. at my first gig she was even resting her head on my chest for a couple of seconds while singing maps. i might be getting some photos of last weeks show here in berlin....if so, ill post them here.
