Right from the opening notes of the first song, "Not Quite Right," a track which features stop-and-go guitars, turntable scratches, and rapid-fire vocals, Mialso follows a predictable formula that involves pairing hip-hop beats with hard-edged guitars. Slow bass lines kick off the song "Too," but it's not long before the crunchy guitar chords and call-and-response vocals take over. "Cyclone" also starts with a moody instrumental intro before giving way to tired boasts (sample lyric: "I'm a cyclone, and you know I will not quit until I'm fully blown"). The only song that takes any chances is "Apples" -- a track that opens with a melancholy violin melody (played by Sara Angus). The initial falsetto vocals in the tune are more genuine than anything else on the album -- but even "Apples" segues into something that sounds like "Nookie," with Savering rapping "so you can take your perfect life and stick it." Now there's something we haven't heard before.
