One of the best albums ever. I first heard of this group back in those BMG / Columbia House days. Since I clearly liked The Smiths, having ordered as many of their CDs as the companies sold, they recommended Belle & Sebastian. I took their advice and all these years later I'm still listening to this album and it is as fresh and seductive as when I first played it, on my Sony Discman while lying on my Ikea bed in my teenage bedroom.
