The noise is not to be found here, rather what is on this record is a lot of good pop songs that cover a wide range of genre such as post-punk, punk, folk and rock. Mostly based around voice and acoustic guitar it doesn't sound like a singer-songwriter gone lonely. Sounds a lot like David and the Citizens, which is not a bad comparison to be afflicted with. Not bad.
