Reviews:

Identical twin sister Canadian folkies with great bangs: Could these two be any more annoyingly adorable? We were huge backers of their 2002 statement of intent If It Was You, a mostly-electric slew of sharp, observant relationship pop'"little wonder they finagled guest spots from members of Death Cab for Cutie and the Rentals on this one'"but didn't get the hoopla behind 2004's mainstream, Green Day-style breakout So Jealous. Judging by the new one's tracklist, perhaps they've teetered back to the dark side: "Knife Going In" or "Burn Your Life Down," anyone? Making matters even more (adorably) goth, the third high-profile guest appearance comes courtesy of AFI bassist Hunter Burgan. Don't hate us because you're beautiful, T&S.
