On their second full-length, Ida absolutely shines. Ida have an original, nakedly sincere voice and they resignedly show it. Ida's trump card is an honest recognizable voice - the core of what makes any artist historically great. Ida are one of the only bands we know that can take the numbingly complicated emotional content of daily life and somehow distill it to its most simple lyric essence, while at the same time not diminishing its complexity of meaning. . Every line resonates, is quotable, generous, bittersweet and hopeful.
