SECOND ACADEMY, THE: Grave from out of Which We Briefly Wander: LP + CD

This album lacks some serious consistency. It’s got more consistency than a Ween album (what doesn’t?), but I don’t think it’s supposed to come off that way. It is more like two or so bands doing a split LP, but mixing the all the bands’ songs together instead of segregating them by artist. At times, the better times, they sound like they listen to X and The Kills. At other less good times, there is some Americana/indie/acoustic business going on.
