My favorite sounding deerhunter album. Quite possibly my favorite. They definitely honed in onto a specific sound and feel and the outcome is great. They take risks and they ultimately pay off. When i'm going to think of Deerhunter's trademark sound, I'm going to revert back to Monomania.
An album that isn't as grand or incredibly OVERWHELMING as their previous records, but is probably an easier listen. Best praise I could give it is that I listened to this more than once in a row when I first heard it, unlike Microcastle or Halcyon Digest
This is probably the best Deerhunter album. It's cohesive, chaotic and consistent. Some of the best songs 2013 left behind came from this mysterious, dark, and gloomy Indie Rock little masterpiece. Songs like "Pensacola", "Back to the Middle" and "Leather Jacket II" prove that the best deerhunter is the one that knows how to rock the most. Takes a few listens but it's extremelly rewarding. In particular, I fell in love with "The Missing" instantly. That may happen to you with any song.
