AV CLUB, THE: Believe: CD

Although it did not take quite as long as Chinese Democracy, it has been awhile between full lengths for this band. That’s a shitty analogy anyway, since that record was a steaming turd, and this record is super-amazing. Incredible songwriting, engaging playing, and top notch production are just the tip of the iceberg with Believe. I also use The Replacements and The Pursuit Of Happiness as reference points for this band. I know with the last band only me and a few people in Quebec actually remember that band, but oh well. But the band blazes their own trail here, with fantastic results. I would tell you my favorites, but that would just be the entire track listing, and that would look pretty silly. Trust me and check this out. –Sean Koepenick
