 i enjoyed reading this review...pretty on the money. Cease to Begin is a fine follow-up to their killer debut, but it could have used a better closer and another tune or two to flesh things out. By the way, isn't the "Track Eight" you speak of actually called "Marry Song"?? That cut is far too good to call by the wrong of the best songs they've written yet.

 I agree, 'Marry Song' is fantastic. You should definitely check out their in-studio performance @ KCRW (currently available on their free podcast on iTunes), where Ben sings & the keyboardist sing in harmony for the whole track. It's stunning.
