Yes! We were dead before the ship even sank was released in March. Yes! It did go straight into the American billboard charts at number 1 after selling 130,000 copies in it's first week. So why oh why should i give it a 'review' now? Simple: I didn't reckon it was any use when i first got it, and now i think it's great. If you thought the same i'd recommend you turn up your speakers and have another listen.
