This cd is pretty much half and half. You've got some really enjoyable songs on here, and then you've got some dull filler. This is not an epic release, in other words. The Ache is soft, lovesick, and poppy (which is not necesarily a bad thing, especially in the case of We Ragazzi). The music is fused with a Billy Corgan-esque lead singer, female back ground vocals, very little power chords, a LOT of distorted keyboard, and fantastic drumwork. This is not my top reccomendation, but if you're in the right mindset, this can be a decently enjoyable cd.
