 I only heard We Are The Handclaps and it made me want to punch people in the face it was so annoying. Is one man's "catchy" another man's "irritating"?

 Yeah, I agree with the words, but I'm having a bit of trouble reconciling them with that score

 i like this record but i think gavin raises an curious point. "we are the handclaps" kind of pissed me off too, as did the "give me a beat" verse parts of "itch". sometimes it's just too obvious and heavy handed with it's funness. whereas i think "i like music" is just the right amount of dumb that it's not contrived but just dumb and truly fun.

 I know the word irresistible gets thrown around a lot, but for me, that's exactly what Junior Senior are. I didn't want to like this album (frankly, because I felt they'd never top "Move Your Feet"), but "Itch U Can't Scratch" and "Take Your Time" are better than anything they've ever done and some of the catchiest songs of the past year. Not only that, but the production on this album is fantastic in that oversaturated toothsome classic pop way, but not at all annoying. Not to mention, everyone I've played this for loves it. I WILL go see them live too... whenever that happens.
