Their striking sense of style is solid, and their coherence and loyalty to themselves strengthens their musical ground. Unfortunately, the excessive uniformity in some songs inevitably gives you an imperative sense of monotony, and you get that sensation that they are playing the same song over and over again. Nonetheless, if you like more depressive songs, with a very lower mood and calmer melodies, You're Not As ____ As You Think... certainly is an album that was made for you.
My general evaluation concerning this album defines it as a very good one. Their technique is decent and very secure, and they certainly display a modest degree of creativity. Nonetheless, they need to leave more ardently their comfort zone, because in a lot of moments, on this album, the sound becomes unexpressive and generic, and they could be easily labeled as just another band of the genre.
You're Not As ____ As You Think... is not a masterpiece, but is a very good record. Easy to please more specific audiences, enthusiasts of a very down to earth pop rock, with surreal influences, a little reminiscent of Belle and Sebastian, will make up your mind, your head and your heart, with a very brave, lucid and solicit genuine essence.
