Fake Problems - It's Great To Be Alive (2009)

The most recent album from Fake Problems. Normally I would refrain from posting the most recent album of any band, but this album is just so outstanding from start to finish I've been listening to it several times a day for like 4 days. This album is a huge evolution from their previous album, while still being easily recognizable as the same band. Singer and primary songwriter Chris Farren retains his Tom Gabel-esque vocal tone while the songs branch out into all sorts of different sounds while remaining fully coherent and distinctive.
There is not a bad song on the whole album, but "You're A Serpent, You're A She-Snake" stands out as my favourite. This band deserves more attention.
