"Well, shit - Pitchfork gave it a 9.3."

dafuq? a 9.3 for this band? don't they have like a rep to try and preserve?

i see a lot of exaggerated praise for the arguable "improvement" that this band has made. a lot of times in music criticism consistent bands tend to be ignored or degraded because we "expect more from them," but when a terrible band slightly improves their game it gives the illusion of this great overhaul. if you go from being dog shit to cat shit you've improved, but you're still shit.

i dont think this is an improvement however because it sounds like annoying indie church music that some little kid would sing picking flowers. and isn't even remotely fun, which is all this band was good for (though I never personally liked them)

it's like passion pit taking themselves seriously

They didn't need improvement so I'm not sure how that would effect anything.

This isn't very good. I had lofty expectations. Not sure why

really excited by the mixed reactions this album is getting. I liked Contra quite a bit, it was shameless fun. I'm interested to see what side of the argument I'll fall on, but for now I'm busy with other new records.

Agreed, Bowie and The Knife are great. I thought the Tomahawk album was pretty good too.

Listening to this today, in 5 minutes to be exact.

It's not bad
It's not great
It's not what I listen to Vampire Weekend for.

Yeah I get the mad indie pop vibes from you Anthracks, maybe not Autechre or Tomahawk but you'd probably dig Akron/Family? You a fan of theirs?
