Spring Came, Rain Fell" sounds like a cheery tv commercial in print, until you are hit with the opening lines of Club 8's signature hidden darkness: "Waiting for the fall, to take us al. Angergård sings on "Close to me" a 90s Manchester scenester sounding piece, where "Baby, I'm not sure if this is love" returns to Karolina. I Give Up" is an experimental fragment, so reminiscent of St. Etienne's early days, that is to resurface in full later in track 11 "The Girl With The Northern Soul Collection", a polished quiet shuffle using the rhythms that became so popular in the Manchester sound of the early 90s. "Friends and Lovers" is a dubby bare bones track with Komstedt on radio thin voice.
