From the reviews of this, I can tell either you love this or hate it. Personally, I fucking love it

Predominantly forgoing their globetrotting influences, NYC indie-rockers Vampire Weekend find their natural sound on 3rd LP 'Modern Vampires of the City'. Despite a jarring opener, this is easily their most cohesive & consistent record, with the band getting the balance of old & new just right. Furthermore, the way in which the quartet deftly juxtapose quirky & vibrant melodies with thoughtful lyrics concerning serious subject matter is expertly handled. Pianos, organs, harpsichords & strings are all used well on this elegant LP which suggests that Vampire Weekend are anything but a flash in the pan. Recommended Tracks: Step, Unbelievers, Finger Back & Don't Lie.

On and off with this for months after actively despising Vampire Weekend's earlier albums. But have come around to it today; definitely one of the best offerings the "indie pop" tag has dropped in a few years' time.

I use "Step" as my morning alarm song and oh my god I am the cheeriest morning person right now and I usually claim souls before my morning coffee/coffee induced poo.

It's like when my roommate at Uni and I used to wake up to that silly Wham! song every morning to pump us up for 8:00AM physics labs.

Digging: Taylor Swift - 1989

The diversity of styles in the songwriting and Ezra's melodies really make this album for me.

Have it, but haven't gotten around to riding around to it in the car.
The few songs I heard weren't as instant for me.
Kinda threw it on the back-burner.
