Picks and Pans Review: Born on a Pirate Ship
This third full-length album from the Canadian quartet is their best yet, a pure pop gem. Born on a Pirate Ship is outrageous and contradictory too. The relentlessly melodic lilt of the tunes is hard to resist, but the lyrics of songs like "This Is Where It Ends," "I Live with It Every Day" and "The Old Apartment" cover such grim-and-gritty topics as mental illness, childhood guilt and abusive boyfriends. The clever contrasts make this a memorable disc—and a contender for Album of the Year honors from the American Psychological Association. (Reprise)
