Untitled didn't come close to the punch of The Rembrandts, as the duo moved away from the bright pop that shone on the previous effort in favor of a more subdued approach. And while the subject matter -- mainly songs of yearning and lost love -- hasn't changed much since the debut, the subtle string arrangements and minor-key melodies blend quite nicely, bringing out the themes more fully. Aside from the beautiful "Johnny Have You Seen Her," which is pleasantly reminiscent of Squeeze, the songs lack the instantly endearing quality of the debut, but are no less rewarding with a little more effort.
