Was turned on to this by one of my favorite music blogs Friends With Both Arms.
But this album is great, it reminds me of a lot of old bands I used to listen too. It seems to fall in the realm of Weakerthans and Getup Kids, with maybe a hint of Page France, but great nonetheless. I think this album gets a little melodramatic towards the middle but I love melodrama so I go with it. I wish I could name the Japanese director that said this but he said that melodrama was a reflection of our subconscious. Its hyperbolizing our current self, doing things to the extent our fantasies want, like blurting out "i love you" or over romanticizing love. Its there in our culture and therefor it is deep seated in our souls. I get off track.
