OK, so I did a quick search and found a few threads that dealt with this band tangentially, but nothing especially dedicated to them.

Even though TripleJ have been featuring their new(?) album "Bring it Back" I have only as yet heard a couple of songs from it.  What I have heard has been good, and there was a cover that they did a while back that I have completely forgotten all about until just now.  I remember liking that also, but I unfortunately cannot remember what the cover was of.

What I wanted to ask was if anyone has this album and if they can tell me if it is a strong album or if it is patchy.  ie: is it consistently awesome, or is the reason I've only heard a couple of songs from it due to there only being a couple of good songs on the album?

Please help me, QC Forum.

I don't know (sorry), but I also have a request with regard to them. Mabye someone who is more familiar with them could oblige. If you could pick mabye two or three of their best songs I would be most grateful. I want to sample them, but not sift through everything.

They covered "These Days". Bring It Back is a really good album, but I like Team Boo better.

Mike: On their Myspace they have a few songs. The song "Ha Ha" is probably one of my favorite songs at the moment. It's such a fun and happy song! Please listen.

I haven't heard too much of their new stuff. I have My Solo Project and Our Constant Concern.

My top three are:
A Control Group
Ha Ha
I Have Space

I saw them when they came through Gainesville a couple years back. Fun show.

I haven't heard much. The first time I heard them was live and I wanted to go out and get their cd.

Team Boo is their best album, in my opinion and is also GREAT.

Team Boo is by far the best album, in my opinion.  I believe 'Ha Ha' is widely considered their best song, although I enjoy 'Parachutes' quite a bit and could not tell you why.
