I actually went and picked up this album the week it came out. It was ok in my book, not nearly comparable to the first album though.

I think it's way better than their self titled.

I like the direction they've taken. I definitely think it's deeper than the first, which is why I like this one better. I think they toned down the oxford preppyness of the first album just the right amount.

it sounds a bit too much like Paul Simon's Rhythm of the Saints, TBH, with electronics replacing the real percussion

and I don't really like vocalist's register shifts
