4.0 excellentKnott- EMERITUS | October 4th 12

About 5 billion times better than the last DCFC album. Has the laid-back pop poise of Plans and an immensely strong second half. Highly recommend this, whatever you thought of Codes and Tedium.

Lots of fluff, but what can you expect from a b-sides album?

I love this solo album, but that's probably because it sounds a lot like Arcade Fire's Funeral...otherwise I would've rated it higher.

Ben is definitely playing it safe, as he has been doing with Death Cab for a few years now. Notwithstanding, this is a great collection of Indie tracks accumulated over the years of recording with his band. One can definitely hear shades of records past on certain tracks and, therefore, the time in which they were recorded.

less catchy, less awe-inspiring lyrics than DCFC but still better than most stuff out there
