4.0 excellentderho | January 1st 13

A simply delightful album. I mean delightful through-and-through. No, I don't use the term lightly. It feels thick, the whole thing, with good-vibes and shimmery guitar-tones. Seems by '85, all the first-wave indie groups were dead, dying, or making pop. As far as the 'pups are concerned, it feels like they should have been doing it all along! The album does play a bit like the steamy cup-o-joe on the cover. A little cream is tossed in when the needle falls, and so it swirls, fast at first, then slug-slow, all before frothing up and settling, fairly evenly, throughout the solution. I get that filler feeling every once in a while, but only for a moment. Mainly diamonds. 8.5/10

Absolute classic. IF I could go back in time and sit in a bar with my favourite beer and have this being played live in front of me I would have reached Nirvana.........
