Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Want to turn your brain off to some soft rock.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It’s great, very simplistic, love minimalist album covers.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Not this one.

Final Thoughts:

Catfish And The Bottlemen didn’t necessarily stand out to me, but it wasn’t grating either. It’s really the opening track of this album is fantastic, and it just kind of plateaus from there. They remind me a lot of Seabird but with more angst. I’d say if they diversified a little bit and focused on their songwriting they could produce a solid album.
