      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Key tracks - Icebox, Tree house, Zen Brain

      it's a great shame that Nada surf will only be remembered by the majority of people for there hit single 'popular' which is featured here but is only one of the fine tracks on offer here.

      Were as 'popular' is a fine song bristling with humor, irony and a kick ass chorus it is not at all representative of the rest of hi/low which is a mixed bag of original ideas and fine song writing topped with Mathew Caw's distinct vocals and lyrical styling

      For the real essence of Nada Surf you need to look to the Weezer esque pop styling of the the brilliant second single 'Tree house', the laid back pop of 'Zen Brain' and the furious pop rock of album opener 'Deeper Well'.

      Nada Surf are also more than capable of throwing a few curve balls as well, just check out the intense but melodic riffing of the brilliant 'icebox' and the excellent quiet/load dynamics of 'Hollywood'.

      This is fantasticly diverse album that deserves full to be remembered for more than a novelty hit.
