I saw them live in the parking lot of Urban Outfitters during SXSW 08 and they were amazing.. they hopped into the crowd for a couple of their songs and we were all jumping around with them for the length of the songs.. it was awesome

last week the first song i listened to every day was "Time to Pretend". one of the best singles ever written by any bad. too bad the album as a whole is subpar. "Kids" is the only other song I ever listen to

I like the album, there are 3/4 tracks that really stand out from the rest, but even the rest are solid as well. Good stuff.

If you get a chance to see them, GO!! High energy, sound phenomenal (just like the record), and got the whole crowd moving. Awesome.

I'm seeing them at a festival this summer cant freakin wait. They seem like a suitable band for a big festival.

Yeah, I saw them at a really small venue that probably should house 250 people, but seemed more like 500 were there. Still, even though you couldn't really get a lot of elbow room it rocked seriously. They are playing a festival near here this summer too, but I'm not sure if I'm going to make it to that one. Just so much to do this summer....But their sound is HUGE (and original), definitely festival worthy.

I just hope their second album isn't disappointing. I thought they only had the one?? (Oracular Spectacular) You know how you really like a band's first album and then they release the second and they haven't progressed? They are pretty original I hope they can keep it up. Great album though.
