It's difficult to know exactly which slice of this hyper-Romantic delight to fall head over heels with most. The second full length record from Utah's greatest ode to mid-80s Cure glitters its way from one glorious swoon to the next, making it easy to forget what year it is, let alone the day. Opening on 'It's Over', a track packed with punching drums and gliding chord refrains, while the sound may be more than familiar authenticity is key here. 'Nites Like This', 'Shatter' and the closing title track sound genuinely wounded, or at least come with a sense of reflecting on old injuries. 'Complainer' launches from the starting blocks with an abandon that belies its lyrical sincerity. 'Sweet Candy' introduces subtle elements of surreal rock worthy of a Lynchian parable.
