Despite and maybe because of its occasionally confused tone, Now We Can See largely works as a smart and relentlessly catchy growing-pains album. The band, you imagine, feel like a lot of us do: it seems like there's so much to be hopeful about, but decades and centuries of human warfare and indulgence make you wonder if we'll ever be able to take the long view, and treat our society like we give a shit about it.
