I gave this a listen a while ago again and while I really love the tracks that are great - which is the first few - it kind of dips on quality after that. Those first few songs are amazing though and When We Were Young is one of my favourite songs by any Irish band ever. So I'll probably buy the reissue.

I am listening to this for maybe the first time ever, beyond a few songs here and there.

Wonderwall is pretty much a rip off of Tripped?



Anyway, it sounds nothing like Fontaines DC, what are yiz like.

Hmm, that was alright. It's kind of awkwardly placed somewhere in between Britpop and Smashing Pumpkins-y US alt-rock? Much like Ireland I guess.

There's definitely something there that raises it above the usual mid 90s alsorans but it's hard to glimpse it behind all that woeful "tasteful" 90s production.

That's my one listen review. I'll be back in a few years after my third listen with a final rating. @scutter hang in there.
