SOI is a combo of TUF and POP

As I listen over and over to this album I get a Deja Vu feeling for TUF and for POP. I hear both influences in this album and really like it a lot.

I definitely hear Pop and still hear Boy-War. I haven't considered if I hear TUF, but perhaps with Wire it's there too, definitely there with the follow up thematically to Bad and Andy's story.

They really did a bang up job on this one! Blissful!

I am very impressed with this one so far. I love the fact that they did not pander to radio hits and just released something that has great melodies and beautiful images.

I hear October and NLOTH in it, mixed with a bit of Boy.

The only song where I see a really evident Pop influence in Sleep Like a Baby Tonight. The whole structure of that song really reminds me of If God Will Send His Angels.

I personally hear Pop and HTDAAB.  They all share "shiny" production, and HTDAAB had hints of the nostalgia that permeates SOI.

Me too, and HTDAAB harkens back to Boy and War.

Exactly.
