Sound — 9
There are some bands where it is astonishing to hear how full a song they can write using only a guitar, a bass, and a drum kit when bands with twice the variety of instruments can only produce pale imitations and the wombats are one of these bands. This is indie rock at it's greatest, you can dance to it, sing to it and, should the mood take you, cry in your bedroom to it. I propose creating a new genre called "multi-purpose rock" to use in situations such as this!
Lyrics — 9
This album is in escence the diary of three 20 something teens who are trying to find themselves while having a good time and this is what it sounds like. The lyrics are not deep or moving, they will not change your life or inspire you but they are funny and many young people will be able to relate to the situations they describe. I personly love the lyrics to these songs as they seen to tell my life story in 15 fun and easy to listen to songs.
Overall Impression — 8
This album does not have many faults, it is not very impressive or technically difficult but then it never claimed to be. The lyrics are not very deep, verging on superficial but nobody ever said that music was a philosiphy lesson (correct me if I'm wrong) it is just honest funny indie rock with no secrets and nothing to hide and this is why I like it so much.
