Following on from 2001's The Eastmoor Rules, I don't think there were many that expected the leap that Dugong were to make between that fantastic record and this one.

While their debut album was a great melodic punk record it only hinted at what the band would be capable of and boy, did Hat Danko deliver.

The influences that crept into the bands sound prior to this are here fully explored. The Karate influence is all over songs like "The Never Saw The Magic" while "Vital Loop" was probably more than a little influenced by the late 90s emo scene. Then you get the perfect pop-punk of "Tonight This Is Perfect", the more refrained "Human Fade", the antagonistic "And Now We Are Men" and the alt-country twang of "The More Rivers You Cross The More You Know About Rivers".

Basically each and every song on this record is a classic in its own right. Together they make for one of the most ambitious, varied (yet cohesive) and, above all else, strongest, releases we've ever put out.
