where do I start?
Apparently they've never really put a foot wrong, in album consistency.
I just ordered it.
you couldn't have ordered a better one. It's fabulous (har har har)

I love Xiu Xiu to death.
Here's my best of - I reckon you should listen to this, pick your favorite couple of songs, and buy the album they're from :)

havent listened to the new one much
