A bump since the buzz has been waning on this DAMN GOOD record.
We, collectively, tend to have a short attention span.
This album is worthy of more year-end consideration than I've been seeing it getting.

Not as happy as you are for remembering to listen to this gem.

This is a great record, and I constantly get it stuck in my head, but it's kind of a guilty pleasure because I could never play it around some of my friends. That said "Snails" is the worst idea for a song ever.

It's in my top 3. One of the few bright spots from this year in my opinion.

near-top-5 for me, but still slowly climbing. a lot of pop goodness. 0% guilt. 100% in saturated phat.

its a good record. i think i DO like interventions and lullabyes more just because it's even more over the top pop music. but i don't really expect anyone else to agree with that.

"the first single" is absolutely one of my favorite pop songs just about ever. the demo version though, rather than the album version.

like 4 of the songs from that album were used in laguna beach.
