*****
I've always thought that The Drones were one of those bands that people who were far more seriously into music absolutely loved, but I didn't get much out of unless they put out a catchy single (see also Animal Collective, The Knife).

Oddly enough, I don't think they've really changed with this. Everything's completely off kilter, and Gareth's haphazard crooning is still instantly recognisable. But when I put this album on it just connects with me from start to finish. There are only 8 tracks on the album which helps with making a rare case that for an album that I mostly just listen to when playing Team Fortress or something, I actually know what most of the songs are from looking at the tracklisting!

Starting with the ballistic title track and closing with the more restrained "Why Write A Letter You'll Never Send" which appeals to me in a way I can't quite articulate. "I See Seaweed" is a captivating and relentless album that has given me a new found respect for The Drones.
