I just listened to their last album, which I hadn't heard. Nothing really stuck with me, same as the first album.

I still really love Wall of arms which I'd give maybe a 9/10 (although I love every song on the album). Also very fond of Given to the wild, which is a much more subdued experience, more romantic, quiet and sweet I would say, less jangly and anthemic than WoA. 8/10 for me. The first and last albums are ok but not much to hold on to.
