This is exactly the kind of release the Beijing music scene needs right now. Eight tracks in total and clocking in at just under 30 minutes, No Party People is (ironically enough) exactly the kind of CD you put on at a party to get people to stop staring at the walls to get up and dance.

It's not often that the frenetic energy of Beijing's underground rock scene is captured with such a meticulous attention to detail and professional polish, and coupled with songs written as skillfully as these are, the album is a genuinely upbeat, fun and pleasantly varied listening experience that will not wear out even after numerous listens.
