You cannot hate this record. From the earnest vocal to the slowly growing anthem of a tune it pulls in all that is important about emotional guitar music. It's not as fragile as Starsailor and it doesn't bawl it's eyes out like Hundred Reasons and the emo brigade. Lyrically there is definitely something 'meaningful' being said, but like all classic indie anthems you're never quite sure what. The strings that cut in towards the end actually fit rather than appearing like an Oasis bolt-on. Truly magnificent.
