It might just be the Scottish accent, but on first listen this sounds a lot like "100 Broken Windows"-era Idlewild with the REM gone. Hutchinsons is a better lyricist, though.

My favorite thing about this album is it sounds like the guys were shooting to make arena rock, but they couldn't help including lyrics about "fucking someone you don't know." I'd bet their producer was standing there with a sick look on his face saying "can't we...seriously, just tone it down a little?"

Sean, I've had that exact same thought actually. What strikes me is how much Frightened Rabbit sound like a lot of other bands--they're just such good fucking songwriters that they manage to overcome it.

it's "Spanish," not "sponge." As in Jesús. Not Hutchinson's proudest moment, there.
