I DON'T KNOW WHY (ha) I didn't give this album more of a chance when it dropped! Once I approached this album with a more open mind (not comparing it too much to their earlier work) I realized it was quite brilliant and charming in it's own right.
Favorite Track: "Don't Know Why" Steven Reichling
ALBUM OF THE YEAR, easily.
effortlessly on a par with X's vintage catalogue, "Alphabetland" is a solid testimony of a band as vibrant, creative and urgent as ever. Honestly, it's THAT good. Strongly recommended. ramblinerikk
