4.5/5; mostly good power-pop + "Name" & 2 throwawa
The hit single "Name" and the two closing tracks aside, this album is thick & fast-paced soulful indie rock n' roll. That's tracks 1-5 and 7-11, equaling ten out of thirteen, a good value, IMO. The lyrics, and vocal delivery, as well as the moaning whale of the guitar(s) signal melancholy, although it's not a sappy sobby melancholy, but rather as a kind of bittersweet nostalgia. Not all the aforementioned ten songs are pure gold, but at the very least they compliment each other's strengths.
