Album of the Year brings all that is the sound of The Good Life to fruition–catchy, moody pop/rock that fluctuates between the all-ages club and the smoky cabaret, right alongside sing-along crescendos that spin into cinematic bursts. It also proved to be The Good Life’s most critically acclaimed album to date. Pitchfork gave it an 8.0, while AP called it one of the “10 essential albums of 2004.” Now back in print for the first time in years and expanded to 2xLP vinyl.

Album of the Year brings the evolving sound of The Good Life to fruition- catchy, moody pop/rock that fluctuates between the all-ages club and the smoky cabaret, right alongside sing-along crescendos that spin into cinematic bursts. Every song has a plan, going to a place that will inevitably involve leaving, being left, or leaving in anticipation of being left. Tim Kasher's ability to cleverly turn an innocuous phrase into a malicious slur of ill will leaves you not knowing whether to laugh or cry, all while giving you the distinct impression that you'll be quoting him at some point down the road.
