Excellent review, especially this sentence:



"And the comparative looseness of this album is refreshing; it floats through a heavy atmosphere with a beauty reminiscent of the band's best moments, sounding both helpless and commanding in the same moment."



There is something about this album which makes it almost existential in tone; it's not overtly joyful, yet not overtly mournful either. It sort of flows in the same way that time does, and it reaches for something beyond itself whilst at once acknowledging that there may not be anything for which to reach. It stikes me as a record which seeks to mirror the absurdity of life, and I think it does so very, very well.



It's like Mersault says at the end of The Stranger: "As if that blind rage had washed me clean, rid me of hope: for the first time, in that night filled with signs and stars, I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world. Finding it so much like like myself--so like a brother, really--I felt that I had been happy and that I was happy again."

It was intended that my post sounds "funny". I speak english since I'm 8, but there are several words
that are only used in essays etc. Of course they can fit very well, why else would they exist, but
they are...advanced.

^Agree, even though its not even close to their best effort, i have a hard time rating this anything lower than a 4.

My sister's boyfriend just said Jonsi sounds like Herbert the Pervert from Family Guy...not gonna lie....I'm having a hard time taking this record serious this time around.
