Reviews in the media and on Amazon.com have been generally glowing for this debut. I wish I could fully agree, as I DID enjoy aspects of this disc (fresh sounding vocals and good folk-like band, some interesting song-writing) and I generally like this type of music
That said, as a band they require substantial growth to be considered "great": e.g., more song-writing consistency and less reliance on the "pop"-like arrangements.
So the promise of this band may be a "5", the actual disc is a 3.5 in my books. It is the promise that makes me cheer on their further development as artists.
