Album Review

The Stereo single is the middle ground of the three released from Brighten the Corners material. Although not as strong as Shady Lane/Wanna Mess You Around, it is clearly better than the Shady Lane/Slowly Typed single. The two bonus tracks on the single are "Westie Can Drum" and "Winner of The"; the "Stereo" included here is the album version.

"Westie Can Drum" is a bare-bones arrangement, but becomes a bit repetitious. If you like the fun, driving-with-the-windows-down-on-a-summer-day Spiral Stairs songs, then this disc is worth buying.
