Beulah is a criminally underrated band (or, rather, was - turns out a band can't survive on excellent write-ups alone), and this album (one of their two best, along with Heartstrings) is no exception. Even if you don't like indie music, you'll love Beulah - they're a great blend of pop and rock, and could easily fit on mainstream pop, mainstream rock, or college radio stations. Beautiful (and sometimes beautifully dissonant) in its composition, from breezy, gentle, tropical-sounding love and heartbreak pop ("Popular Mechanics for Lovers," "What Will You do When Your Suntan Fades?") to harder songs ("Gravity's Bringing Us Down," "A Good Man is Easy to Kill") to everything in between ("Hey Brother," "Silver Lining"), this is pretty much a perfect album - not a single dud to be found (although Beulah has very few duds in general). Just pop the CD in, and put the remote down - you won't want to skip a single song (though you may be tempted to repeat a few!) Love, loss, family, friendship, heartbreak - to paraphrase "Silver Lining," "you want it... you got it."
