Spanish Techno is a great pop song coming out of the same sound as the first two albums, which are genius. I appreciate some sugar pop as much as anyone. But in spite of that, it took me a few weeks each of listening to those two albums before I starting loving them. And it takes more listens to truly begin to appreciate the musical complexity of them. It's kind of like wedding cake, where you can only handle so much before it makes you sick. Mass Romantic and Electric Version's tracks are like back to back to back three-foot plastic Pixie Sticks. And they are overwhelming until you build up the pop tolerance.

But Twin Cinema has some variety that those two did not have. There are some more reserved, and I guess moodier songs on it, instead of the nonstop Romper Room punk. Songs like These are the Fables, and Bones of an Idol are uncharted waters for the NP's. And like the first two albums, my first reaction to the album was, this is overrated. But it is growing on me far faster than the first two albums did. I just don't know if it will have the staying power that they have had with me.

By the way, I highly recommend finding a torrent of a NP's show - they are outstanding live as well, and Carl Newman's stage banter makes it worthwhile alone. He's a funny, quirky, and intelligent guy. I really hope these guys do some extensive touring for this album.

'The Bleeding Heart Show' is I think the best song I've heard this year.

It's like, epic.

I saw these guys on Conan and they were fairly bad live.

Twin Cinema is amazing.

I wasn't expecting anything going in.. and now the CD is on my regular rotation. I'm loving most of the tunes.. but I gotta say Spanish Techno is my favorite.. hm.. well.. maybe not. It's hard to say!

I would recommend (at least) this album to anyone.

Twin Cinema is definitely in my top five for the year right now probably coming in just behind Bloc Party and Death Cab.
