I've been a fan of this fan for a few years now, and I can safely say this is probably their best effort since their debut. They've combined the American folk influences from "Howl" and the JAMC/shoegazer influences from their debut to form "Baby 81". The opening track even sounds like Sonic Youth at times. Their sense of songcraft has improved as well, in fact, this is probably their most accessible album to date.
"Weapon of Choice", "All You Do is Talk" and "Need Some Air" are the albums best tracks. If your looking to get into this band then this is the album to get as they span their entire career through this one album.
