This is a (not so i guess) surprisingly excellent album. Kevin Drew is slowly becoming one of my favorite voices in rock music, and this record only further solidifies his stellar work in Broken Social Scene. It can be argued that the first half of album (tracks 1-8) is definitely the stronger half, but really with the exception of "Big Love", I enjoy every track here thoroughly. This is definitely recommended and may see itself changing to a 4.5 if I keep up my torrid listening pace

I really, really enjoy this album. It's cathartic and dark much like Embryonic, but much more like the morning wreckage and haze (much like the album cover depicts) that that album left in its wake. All in all, a slow ambient cruise through a trippy mixture of keyboards, spaceship sounds, basslines, and Wayne Coyne's melodic, falsetto. He even sounds a bit like Angus Andrews here a bit, and a few of these songs really do give me a Liars vibe, which is certainly a good thing. Overall impressed, and excited with the Lips new darker choice of direction.

Not to say that Bedlam and Octahedron were disappointments, but I'm surprised and delighted by how much of a rebound release this was, really great stuff

This could get higher or lower as I've only spun this twice thus far but have really enjoyed it. A very, very paced, relaxing listen, that flows with ease, as I'm sure Granduciel and co. intended (he continues with his affinity for spacey segues and interludes). One thing I was surprised about was the average track length; this is no complaint, just an observation. I remember having a similarly surprising feeling when popping "Wakin' On A Pretty Daze" into my iTunes some 8 or 9 months ago. Not that TWOD didn't have long tracks before, but this album has a 6 minute average track length; maybe a bit of a response to his buddy Kurt Vile's recent track length extension? Who knows, or cares; but funny. Great album though, I'm glad War on Drugs are expanding their small but excellent catalog.
