Is It Funny When It Hurts is the new album and seventh from Edinburgh based Quiet As A Mouse. The eleven tracks are a nice mix of styles and influences, yielding an album that will satisfy fans of alt-rock, post-punk and indie. The songs are catchy, the instrumental parts are skillful and the vocals are engaging. There is a bit of a lack of energy and edge, as it all seems a little too polished and practiced. That said, this is a band at the height of their powers and the album is solid through and through. Stream and buy Is It Funny When It Hurts at the link below.
