An impressive & mature debut for such a young band, 'I'm Like A Virgin Losing A Child' does a respectable job of balancing accessible & emotional indie-rock. While there is a nice mix of everything musically, it is lead vocalist Andy Hull who commands attention with his storytelling & vocal abilities. The sparse ballads are not quite as successful as those tracks which are either up-beat or switch tempo, but nothing is at all bad & this LP shows enough promise to suggest that Manchester Orchestra have an extremely bright future. Recommended Tracks: Alice and Interiors, I Can Barely Breathe, Wolves At Night & Now That You're Home.

I'm gonna doublepost here, is it just me or does the intro to I Can Barely Breathe sound eerily familiar to the intro to Sowing Season by Brand New?

This is still pretty solid, METN is just plain better. They're a more focused developed band now.

They grew more on the other aspects, as well as a little in the songwriting department. The outro of I Can Feel a Hot One just brings what they've done to a completely different level.
