Even the band thought they weren't as good as the megahype that surrounded this debut release. The fastest selling debut release in UK history with 363,000 copies in the first week. Could an album really be THAT good? Well, after the hype settles and the time has passed, this album can be given credit as a great rock album of the first decade of the 21st century. Did it change the face of rock music as we know it? Not really, but it is a really damn good album, and worthy of multiple listenings. A great band that started off strong, only to get better. "I said, 'I bet that you look good on the dancefloor. Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984'".
