Lead track “The Other Girls” is pretty to the ear but destructive to the psyche: Ramone sings about perpetually living inside her head. “I Heard You Say” and “Vanishing of Time” are on par in creepiness.
The ladies offer an upswing on “Dance (If You Wanna),” and they dive into teenage love song archetypes on “Take It As It Comes.” There’s a back-and-forth of advice about an oblivious boy for an overly earnest girl and a slow, hand-clap worthy beat guides the tune. “Lake House” and “Vanishing Time” are the closest to the former, more raucous Vivian Girls, but with polished production neither one is so messy or chaotic.
But what weighs heavier than slight shifts in sound, though, is that ever-present hopelessness in the lyrics. They can be downright tragic (“Death”) or of pitiful devotion, but no matter the topic, there’s underlying unhappiness in the hooks—a sentiment over which even the mainstream masses like to ruminate.

"Punk" style like this seems like it is the polar opposite of punk. Bradford Cox…
They're kind of starting to look like a joke of themselves. Song's good though.
