Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Not quite in the mood for punk, or in the mood for pop, but want a freakazoid mix of both for some reason.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It’s a nice colour, but a little too simple for my liking.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

No sir.

Final Thoughts:

I don’t really know what to think of this band, they’re music is a really weird mix that sometimes feels a little “weak” for my expectations for punk. They are pretty liberal with the ooh’s and la’s and that gets to me. The vocalist also can be really good or grating depending what mood I’m in. You’re Welcome doesn’t let me make a definitive stand on this group, but good lord let’s hope it doesn’t continue in this direction, please.
