Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

On the hunt for a happy pop album with lots of horns.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Not my favourite, not my least favourite. Cool colour, but kinda bland over all.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

That’s the dream.

Final Thoughts:

Beirut surprises me in their consistency, I’m still waiting for this band to make an album that I don’t like, but No No No is not one of them. They stick to their formula and it seems to work for them. Even having a song (Gibraltar) that seemed to surpass the fame of Elephant Gun on this album is an incredible feat in itself. Beirut has yet to get old to me, and I’m doubtful if even ten more albums of more of the same would even faze me because it’s just that damn good.
