This record is amazing: potent, taut, emotional post punk that displays songwriting skills, melodies, fluid arrangements, and, most of all, groove, which so many bands that sound like this seem to ignore. The pain and desperation in Tim Kasher's voice grabs you at the first casual listen; you needn't know the back story about his recent divorce to feel immediately what this is all about. No one likes songs of emotional damage better than me (and I know I'm far from alone in this sentiment), so if you're looking for something powerful, honest, dark, and brave to wrap up an evening, this would more than do the trick.
