There's good songwriting and a lot of talent here, but I guess it's just not my cup of tea. Somehow, it just doesn't work, and isn't a pleasant listening experience for me at all. Radiohead is one of my all time favorites, and this just doesn't compare. I'm not saying everything has to sound like Radiohead (thank heavens it doesn't), but like RH I'll give this album several listens to see if my opinion of it doesn't change. Right now, to my unaccustomed ears, it sounds like Clash meets Duran Duran with some late Beatles thrown in. Maybe a bit too much "British pride" for me. If you like that kind of thing, then by all means get this album. I will end by saying it's better than 90% of the music being made today,, having good composition, arrangement, and songwriting.
