Fantastic. The songs send shivers down my spine. I am not an expert in music, but if I like the lyrics (this is my main criteria for liking a song) and I like the tune, then it is definately a hit with me. I cannot stop to listen to this album, and for me the best songs are "You could be Happy", "Make this go on forever" and "set the fire to the third bar". If you heard and liked "chasing cars" (probably the most famous song from this album), this one comes in a close 4th in my rating, so this is a testamant of the quality of the rest of the album. The only song that really doesn't light my fire is "Headlights on a Dark Road", but maybe this is because it follows directly after my 3 varourite tunes. If you only buy one CD this year, make sure it is this one, you will not be disappointed.
