....this is the finest work this young band has released to date. Many fans are still confounded by the new direction and richer, heavier sound of this LP, but before you cry fowl, listen. I mean really LISTEN. The Kings have improved thier chops and arranging so vastly that they scarcely sound like the same band that made "Youth & Young Manhood" and that's a good thing, it's called growth.

Listen to the newfound confidence in Caleb's voice on the first single, the gorgeous "On Call" or his parched yelp before every verse on "Charmer", or what an airtight rhythm section Nathan and Jared have become on barnburners like "Mc Fearless" and "Black Thumbnail". Witness Matthew's spacey guitar atmospherics on the opener "Knocked Up" and tell me you aren't impressed with the simple beauty of it. This LP may take a few spins to soak in for some listeners but instead of comparing it to the last 2 releases, spend some quality time with..."Times" and spin in repeatedly, back to back about 6 times and the beautiful clattering will unfold and bless your ears like never before.
