Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Looking for an angrier version of Death Cab.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It’s great, it fits the album well, and is kind of funny at the same time.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Kind of, but I’d probably not because it’ll be pricey I’m sure.

Final Thoughts:

Car Seat Headrest is one of those bands that is being blown out of proportion. A lot of artists I love talk about how great this album is, but in the end it doesn’t do a whole lot for me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a pretty good album, but worth the hype? No. I could be missing something, but it’s a good album, not a great or genre defining one.
