Album Review
Andy S
Reviewed 2011-02-07 
Sugar-drenched power pop, plain and simple and energetic and expertly done. Led by genre veteran Ken Stringfellow, who's regularly subbed in Big Star and R.E.M. Obvious comparisons include New Pornographers, Bob Pollard, Apples in Stereo. FCC 9, start with 5. —Andy

*1 - featuring Hugh Cornwell of the Stranglers; aggressive Cold War Kids whiner
2 - featuring Kay Hanley of Letters to Cleo; upbeat dreamy road music w/ GBV-toned acoustic riff
*3 - featuring Lisa Lobsinger of Broken Social Scene; twee meets Queen? New Pornos meet Mika? energetic, dynamic, fun
*4 - fast, hook-bombarding radio pop
**5 - frantic power pop with a 90s alt-rock edge to it
*6 - dainty pop with fun chorus
7 - theatrical piano ballad
8 - dainty, precise musical theater number; lots of divisions, nice instrumentals
*9 - FCC: "shitty"; energetic feel-good rock with nice build-ups
*10 - driving but mellow, dark-tinted pop
11 - pared-down delicate strummy pop
12 - featuring Paco Loco; uptempo pop with Beach Boys outro
