Silent AlarmNo, but seriously, the first time I heard this album I almost shat myself. The opening drums on “Like Eating Glass” made me want to pummel something–and apparently made my sphincter let go. And then the second track, ‘Helicopter,’ hits and I’m all fudged-up once again. Such raw aggression and control and cool ska undertones can’t be for real! And then there’s the whole The Cure vibe in there as well. I’m not even sure where to go with this thing, but it was one of, if not the most, exciting new albums of 2005. There’s no doubt that this one will endure, even if their follow-ups fail to meet the intensity and great vibe of this, their first, album.
