Would describe this as a flawed masterpiece. A few tracks here and there that may not stand up to the others, but the good ones make up for everything else. This album is incredibly addicting.

More quirky art-pop from the group formerly known as Fun Adults. Honestly, I think I liked the Fun Adults singles more, but this ain't half bad either.
