Firstly, I would like to begin with a mild rant - there are plenty of bands other than Oasis that I can think of whom DMA's draw inspiration from - they are so much more than just a cheap plastic copy!

OKAY - now that's off my chest, to the review!

TIMELESS - First track really packs quite the punch - a straight-up Aussie rocker. In the chorus, those whoaa-ah-ah-ah, yeeeah-ah-ah parts are truly amazing.

LAY DOWN - One of the earlier singles, has perhaps one of the more memorable hooks and guitar riffs, making it the obvious choice for lead single. Well structured as well - knowing when to give the chorus some air for the first round, then giving the full blast for the others.

DELETE - The track everybody seems to love to hate - as most people's first exposure to this band was seemingly a Wonderwall carbon copy. Except that it's so much more than that. It begins as a melodious, mellow guitar ballad, and then the last minute just explodes into blissful overlapped themes.

TOO SOON - Cold starts are always nice. This is one of the heavier moments on the album - but the crooner's melodies just keep on worming their way into my brain in the best way possible.

IN THE MOMENT - uh, Stone Roses, is that you? Anyway, this is easily my favourite track - because every element compliments each other in a way that even Paul Simon would be envious of. From the lush sweeping vocals to the piercing guitar licks post-chorus - this is just one absolutely beautiful track.

STEP UP THE MORPHINE - Perhaps the most pop-sounding track on the record, but that shouldn't suggest any inkling of inferiority. There are many Powderfinger-esque undertones that shine through in this track - most notably in its structure and use of rhythmic guitar chords.

SO WE KNOW - If there were any weak spots to be found on the album, then this track would probably be it - perhaps a little bit bland at the beginning, and it takes a fair while to build. But when it does....OOOHHH BOYY it's something really special!

MELBOURNE - It's simple and it's catchy - and the accelerating ending is enough to make you delirious.

STRAIGHT DIMENSIONS - And then BANG, it's back to the '60s with this short, plucky number that draws out every last ooze of later-style Beatles and early-style Tom Petty. Again, with the melodies, guys!

BLOWN AWAY - A superb, honest ballad with some special drumming effects in play. Getting a strong The Whitlams-y vibe with this one (in the best possible way).

THE SWITCH - And yet, somehow this track has a distinctive Foster The People thing going on - which I can totally dig.

PLAY IT OUT - As far as album closers go, this one sure packs a punch. It has a definite dark side - most notably in its difference of key from the rest of the album. But again the lead guitar and vocals do such a fine job in ensuring you're left with a lasting impression.

For those somewhat skeptical people out there - I implore you to at least give these lads another chance. This is one intricately structured album that I am more than happy with.
