I saw the Stray Suns for the first time at a small community college battle of the bands, and they were awesome. Became addicted to their demo CD and couldn't wait until their first album came out.
I think I may be the luckiest one alive to be one of the first to get it on iTunes. Bought this album yesterday and still can't get enough.
I love the organization of this album which is a lot like their music - gradually builds in intensity, grabs your attention, then slowly smoothes out. The first two showcase their mellow side, then the third is an awesome ride really demonstrating their range. Undertuggin' is still my current favorite which is a great tune that I find myself tapping out the beat on my steering wheel while continually turning it up past 11. The album then has a great finish with a refined version of one of their songs from their demo, "Along the Seven Seas".
Recommend this to anyone who likes the style of DMB and OAR, but wants something new and different.
