Okay... This isn't too bad.

3.0 goodCapablanca | November 4th 11

"Parallax is, without a doubt, the album Bradford Cox has been threatening to release for a decade". Not sure if that means only good things, though. A low 3.5 for now, hope it will grow.

4.5 superbMcMegaMountain | October 31st 11

On par with Microcastle and Halcyon Digest, Cox presents (as Atlas Sound) his best album.. (as Atlas Sound).

4.5 superbjoplinpicasso | October 28th 11

Bradford Cox has never been one for compromises, in performance or on record. Every single release under the Atlas Sound moniker or in collaboration with his fellow Deerhunter bandmates has been a thorough representation of his tenacious artistic vision at the current time. Parallax, though in part an homage to the Neil Young and Patti Smith singer-songwriters of yore, is no exception to this trend, replete with Cox’s trademark creative guitar inventions, alien soundscapes, and queer punk attitude. Dealing with neglect, personal perception, and, yes, romance, the album shelters some of the catchiest (“Mona Lisa”), starkest (“Flagstaff”), and most intricate (“Amplifiers”) songs in Cox’s body of work thus far. It is this exact contrast of the candidly sweet with the unabashedly weird and unexpected – the analog noise with the controlled studio tinkering – that makes Parallax and Cox’s work in total the unique gift to modern music that it is.
