I'll be the first to admit it, the only Belle and Sebastian that I have are their first three albums which as you all know, are extra tasty. I didn't really know what to expect coming into this one since the last release that I have listened to was 12 years ago. After about 3 weeks of listens though, I can say that this album has grown on me threefold. The first couple tracks really come at you with the more electronic side of B&S and are on par with anything else that they have written. The album does take a softer turn which I must say has to catch me in the right mood, but when it does the otherwise dull tunes are so sweet and singable. Anyway, definitely worth checking out.
