Yep, they're young. And 'I Know You Know', for all its rough edges, still exudes the freshness of youth. They also are clearly new to the ways of recording and needed an experienced producer to sort out the musical ideas that were good, from those that were merely adequate, and kick out the occasional naff bit (like the hardly adequate sax on 'Nothing Without Love' or the clichéd effect used on the lead vocal on 'Paranoid').
