I recommend Glasvegas, very similar sound
I think this album blows away Glasvegas, but that's just me.

Popmatters reviewed it today:

Here's Pitchfork's from last week:

Hmmm, somehow I missed Pitchfork posting their review. Thanks.

8.1, that's damn good from those fuckers. They should have put it in their "Best New Music" section. That would have been cool.

Edit: Or maybe it wouldn't have been cool? Why do I care? I don't know.

Just listened through the album again, but this time with the acoustic versions.

Honestly, I'm so in love with Soft Shock and Hysteric that there's no way any alternate version could have felt the same way for me. And they didn't. On the other hand, Skeletons and Little Shadows were two of my least favorites, and I felt those were huge improvements. The original versions just feel anemic and lack personality IMO, so in these acoustic renditions (which, ironically, feel livelier), the quality of the songs really shines through.

So I purchased the deluxe CD yesterday, on sale for only $13 at my local store, and they had a poster at the door with the free exclusives they would have this week. One was supposed to be a 7" single of Zero, but they hadn't received them yet. I'm very curious to obtain it because, 1. It was free with the CD purchase, and 2. Supposedly the B-side is a remix of Zero by none other than Animal Collective, only available on this release.

I don't see an mp3 of that remix online anywhere, so I'm very curious for this single to arrive.

They were offering the same thing on Insound. Waterloo does little bonuses like that all the time. I'm sure they'll have it there too once the vinyl comes out in two weeks.
Yeah!

I got the album today... and unfortunately I can't quite join the lovefest. It's Back to Black all over again - a fantastic first single and opening track that hints at exciting new direction, followed by the album that's good but has nothing to match that amazing first single. Damn you high expectations. I don't know, I'm glad that they're trying out new things, but at the same time it feels like they've lost something apart from the guitars.

Is she still trying to sound like Siouxsie Sioux?

I woke up with 'Hysteric' in my head this morning. It hasn't left all day.
