I was a big fan of the first Peace album, which while inconsistent and flawed to an extent had some fantastic tracks. Although it did seem to occasionally descend into a mess of jangling guitars and off beat drums. The follow up has had some of these rough edges shaved off, which gives it a far bigger and polished sound. The B side starts with 'Someday' which has feels very infused with Oasis style acoustic guitars and vocals, but this is the most derivative this album gets. The music and the lyrics are fairly juxtaposed, while for the most part the music is upbeat, bouncy with a real indie-dance feel, the lyrics are melancholic, chastising the current generation and asking "Where did all the happy people go?".
Also, I'm a sucker for coloured vinyl, so love the the translucent yellow it comes on. Think I've written enough for 500 normanpoints now!
In summary Peace - Happy People, written by fairly unhappy sounding people but listening to it makes you a very happy person indeed.
