The second full-length. 2008. Hands on our hearts but the devil inside.
"...One realizes that the unseated sounds of suspicion and violence can sound the same as uninhibited revelry, and are here more deeply embedded in the sinewy recesses of Fulton Lights’ once pristine sound. Goldman didn’t allow himself to get in the way of a process that is often essentially messy. In surrendering himself to something unbolted he’s produced something far more revelatory than his debut, which sounded at times like a statement record, with all of the warily placed messaging that that implies. The sloppy drums and bubbling horns to end “I Love Your Point of View,” and the strange slowing in “The Way We Ride” and “Everybody’s Running from Something” betrays a far more organic process, and given that the tendency is for writers to ladle follow-ups with gratuitously amassed instrumental variations on the same rote arrangements, this supposed step backwards is also exactly the right step to take."--Coke Machine Glow
