The debut album from Peel is perhaps the most impressive first effort from any band you'll hear in 2007 — the Austin quartet has created a sure-to-be enduring pop-rock record that begs to be heard. Peel's music is bursting with the kind of loose energy only young bands exude, yet the songs belie a cerebral approach to songwriting and lyrical maturity that usually takes years to discover.

The record plays like a pursuit of the perfect three-minute pop song handicapped by youthful enthusiasm and ADD. Like a bad child, Peel can't write a beautiful song without also giving in to the irresistable compulsion to destroy it with unhinged noise. It's that tension that makes this record so interesting and compelling. These songs are immediate and timeless, nostalgic yet hopeful, teeming with sunny regret. And they f'n rock.
