This album completely blew me out of the water, it's better that mmthe first album in my opinion! It's got such a sunny mood and carefully chosen musical fidelity to it, I'm astounded <3
Favorite track: All Together Better.
"To say that this is the first essential EP release of 2017 isn’t even touching on hyping the record. The bar for 2017 has been set exceptionally high...Simply essential listening. Get all over this" - Alt Dialogue
"YBYB come out swinging on this incredibly cheery and accessible set of songs – and accessibility is something that can be really hard to do with this type of music. You get plenty of instrumental bands that are just too complex or too angular in order to attract any none math-rock go-ers ears, where as this EP sits well on the ears of more casual listeners. It’s a very impressive EP that has really allowed me to just sit back and indulge in the shimmering Idiosyncrasies of YBYB" - Birthday Cake For Breakfast
"In their six-track sophomore effort, the London quartet retain their pop-leaning clean-tone melodies and gentle vocals but their execution is a bit more tumultuous, with crunchier guitars, up-beat fusion and bellowing percussion...a positive and feel-good listen, and the interesting dynamics across the four instruments will demand repeated listens" - Fecking Bahamas

Certainly a controversial direction for the band, but this album ultimately rests as my favorite from TTNG. The technical mastery of their previous albums is still present here along with some very thought provoking and philosophical lyrics. I may not always agree with the lyrical messaging, but this is an album which rewards careful listening. Syobnaf
