Its about time they gathered all there songs and threw it into this album, not to mention there critically aclaimed best new song ever, (Is this Christmas).=)

is this christmas?

thanks for letting this album out with the 4 extras! these guys are so good... (merry christmas!)


I absolutely adore this album. Songs like "Backfire at the Disco" and "Let's Dance to Joy Division" are so fun and energetic they you want to burst out jumping and dancing in completely humiliating and joyful ways. "Here Comes the Anxiety" and "Little Miss Pipedream" are surprisingly heartfelt, expressing the brilliant terror and longing that come with love. In a word: Fantastic. One of my favorite albums and certainly a favorite band of mine. Desperately hoping they'll play in the states and come out with a new CD soon.
