Boomkat Product Review:
Following on from the wordy, slacker-ish alt. rock-infusions of their previous efforts Elephant Eyelash and Alopecia, virtually all traces of Yoni Wolf's leftfield hip hop origins have dissolved - or at the very least, undergone a change of state - for this latest effort. The songwriting is still emphatically centred on Wolf's lyrical dexterity, but the Mark Nevers production helps clear up a band sound that on prior releases has sounded gloriously cluttered. As a band, Why? actually sounds like a remarkably slick pop unit these days, although there are plenty of instances where the tone ascends into something approaching outright grandeur: 'Against Me' is resplendent with luscious guitar peaks and toy piano riffs and the wholly splendid 'Into The Shadows Of My Embrace' features a middle section that would seem to riff on Dylan's 'Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll' - albeit with more references to masturbation. Excellent.
