I think it's their best album yet. I really liked Aha Shake Heartbreak and thought it would be tough to top, but they did. It's a shame they don't get their music played on rock radio in the U.S. when crap like Hinder does.

Definately their best CD. It's only $7.99 at Best Buy this week.

Love it so far, listening to it and the modest mouse on rotation on my ipod, I assume they'll be touring soon?

Was hoping to dodge the bullet this week and not buy any CDs, but I like what I've heard from these guys and $8 isn't a bad price for most any CD. I'll give a try sometime soon.

I've enjoyed their first two and this is by far my favorite.

Some very memorable songs here.

Anybody who was interested in the first two should absolutely check out this one. $8 is a bargain!

Tried to pick this up at Best Buy this morning, but they didn't have it on the shelves or in-stock. The worker acted like he had never seen it before, so they may have never gotten it in. This was the BB at Bailey's Crossroads in No. Virginia. That may be the worst BB I've ever been to. It's horrible.

I love this album.

I just found this video on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Om2CwIT2poI)

It's a song from Aha Shake Heartbreak ("Slow Night, So Long") but they make a tremendous amount of noise and Eddie Vedder guests. I would've liked to see this particular performance in person... I had to share...

It's a great album. We had three copies on it's release day, and they were sold out before noon. As a result of duplicate rush orders, we ended up getting about 15 copies the next shipment. We decided to open up a copy and play it, and after hearing it, I bought a copy. After keeping it in the CD player, we sold the rest of them.
