If this album was a car, it would be a turbo-charged convertible, with cruise control! Whoops! I'm coming over all Jeremy Clarkson again; but having said that, a good description nonetheless. This is an exceptionally enjoyable album - well produced, well written, melodic and full of energy. I especially like the clever mono to stereo beginning to "Down With The Ship" (track one). It starts like a crackly. rumbly old gramophone record, then with a sort of phase effect, widens into crisp, tight stereo. "Butterfly" (track three) has been put on the regular M2 playlist. MTV's sister channel in the US. There isn't a single track I do not like of the 10 available. I've thought long and hard about comparisons... It does sound sort of '80s retro... If you like the Rembrandts, you'll love this. But it can stand alone. A great album.
