Tom B notes that Human After All is "clean and refreshing," and while I don't think the album has any value for the average listener, it has revealed itself as a terrific palette cleanser for those of us who spend/waste time digging through countless promos. After devoting a few hours to marginally talented indie shmucks who fail to achieve anything, its nice to hear somebody hit their target and actually accomplish something (in this case, Nothing). Familiarize yourself with the single hook on each track and you won't mind how each goes on for about five minutes. When its over or when you're sick of it you'll be ready to check out that new band that everybody's excited about for reasons they aren't bothering or able to express. Recommended for people who need empty but can't deal with silence (just don't pay money or attention).
