I'd like to rate their first two, but I don't think I can with their debut. Perhaps Sad Songs, lol

So we'll stay inside 'til somebody finds us

Do whatever the TV tells us

Stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz

Don't worry now, all things are well

We'll be alright

We have our looks and perfume on.

I'd have almost the polar opposite. Cardinal Song is a masterpiece.

Cardinal Song would be first, and from there I'm actually struggling.. they're all at least 4-4.5 star songs for me (including Beautiful Head from S/T).



Fuck I just love everything these guys touch.
