Album Review

Interestingly, the press kit for You and Others, the second album by London dad-rock quartet Vega 4, selectively glosses over any mention of the band's 2003 debut album Satellites, basically presenting the group as a new band.

Look for pretty much every song on this album to play over the closing scene of one soapy TV drama or another during the 2007-2008 season.
