Totally, totally what I think of OCTA.  It's so nice to hear such a SLICK
album in a world of noise-rock.  (Now, don't get me wrong, I love all that
guitar-noise-stuff, i truly do, but sometimes you just want something pop-y
yet smooth.)  My favorite song (because I know you all really, really care)
is "a side wins" because I love it's circus-y appeal.
