When this album came out, I was totally in love with the song "Dead Meat", a single on the Friendly Fire album. Then I heard the rest of the album and about exploded with gleeful musical bliss. It was if the late John Lennon had guided his son from the heavens how to make this album melt my ears with its awesomeness. The poetic lyrics are sincere and relatable. Friendly Fire, said to be influenced by his own heartbreaking experience of betrayal, soured friendships, emotional breakups, and the like wouldn't let you know it by the peppy beats and exciting melodies. The great thing about it is that it isn't just your garden variety of break-up songs nor is it bitter or depressing. His tone remains hopeful, strong, and loving. You really feel for the guy and are on his side the entire way. This is one of those albums I can play over and over and not get sick of. This is also one of those albums that makes you excited over every song. No song sounds like filler tracks with just one strong single. EVERY song is brilliant.
