It's the weakest since their debut but still has a ton of great tunes (Oh Baby, Change Yr Mind, Call the Police, etc.)
The Director and I were discussing this yesterday. American Dream > This Is Happening

It holds a special place for me as it soundtracked a very significant coming of age point in my life. Don't hate the opinion though.

Just to clarify before The Director starts sending me mean texts, the American Dream > This Is Happening is my opinion and he does not co-sign.

I just find I turn up listening to that LP the least. There are a few great songs on it, no doubt but there's also 5-6 songs on it that if I never heard again, I wouldn't care. Drunk Girls did not age well, either.

Agreed on Drunk Girls. Loved it when it dropped but no longer revisit.

 Drunk Girls was always the song I liked least but some of the stuff on This is Happening is brilliant... I thought the Ryuichi Sakamoto/Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence nod was so cool...


I love This is Happening.. one of my favorites... and seeing them from the center front of the pit at Virgin Freefest remains one of my most fun experiences..

Another reason why the album is very special to me. Was front row center in the pit when they played Charlottesville in October 2010. Still one of my favorite shows.
