Likable is a good way to put it. Some of it feels like they're reaching for VW commercial syncs but I found the latter half to be more varied in squiggly electronics and other production stuff.

But fuck, that cover art.

Great review, got it in one for me - hard to say why, the album is just a little "nothing". And yeah that cover art... Was that Elton's idea?

Meh to the album. It's sad for me that they haven't performed any Sambanova or Again since the album release and their live shows are only an hour long.

I was surprised to read in a review that they don't touch those old albums in the live show anymore. Interesting!

Nick Littlemore has been responsible for worse cover art in his time: http://covers.a-go.in/max/teenager_-_2007_thirteen.png

The cover art was very reminiscent of Savage Garden.

I also found the lyrics "We are all filled made of something special" to be annoyingly banal. But all that aside it was a good congruous album.
