    It may sound odd, but I just find it far too consistent; nothing really stands out, if you get you what I mean?
    By no means a bad album though, but that's just my opinion.

    The Northern and Emerald Street really stand out for me. I still like Watch Out! better than it, but i think it'll rate quite highly in my 2009 list. just need to give it another listen.

    It's still good. Although I think there are parts that definitely stand out there are others where I think what Adam says is correct, more than anything though it's just a case of there already being a few albums that I prefer to it so far this year. It could still go up or down.

    Not to turn this into an Aof discussion, but yeah, I agree. It's doesn't lack variation or length, but it flows together so well it almost feels like it's much too short, to me. Makes it a consistent record, though.

    I haven't listened to most records that you guys listed above OC/YC, but most don't really interest me. I will however check out Thursday's new one.

    edit: Wow, my ears do not like the new Thursday.
