I just bought the album last night off iTunes.

(this is by Elbow, if you didnt know)

Listened to the first five or six songs, and began to get bored and distracted by the flies buzzing above my head.

It's nice, peaceful and creative, but does have times where the songs drag on too much and to me, show how little creativity the band has. Or I should say, they have their limits, like how I'm good at packing my writing skills into a 2-3 page blog, when others are better off stretching it out into a book. The songs are short for a reason, but even then, I sort of get the itch to hit next or just flip on Metallica half-way through the album.

I will say, though, "Grounds For Divorce" is good. But I can tell that it will bore me after the 10th listen. It's the crazy-heavy guitar beat that hooks you. Dont know if there's much else other than the smooth as silk but simulatenously genuine vocals that really ties that one together.
