Wish I'd downloaded it sooner
I let the disparaging press around the lead singer put me off downloading this for quite awhile. I'm really glad I finally ignored it all and got this album. It's a great album! Summery, bright, fun, catchy tunes. You can definitely hear influences from The Beach Boys "Pet Sounds", as well as Animal Collective (who are also influenced by The Beach Boys). But Wavves occasionally hits on early Modest Mouse as well. I just really fell for this album and hope Wavves keeps putting out good stuff like this.
