4.5 superbdeathprofessa47 | April 21st 13

This album's wavering organ throughout makes this a parallel world to "Everyone Who Pretended..." with its music box piano, but Bows + Arrows keeps up the drive, roughness, and power its predecessor was too often wanting. And I'm not even that big a fan of "The Rat"--I prefer all but maybe 3 songs on the album to it.

if you want to know how I'm feeling as a human being right now, listen to this record a bunch of times.

A cool name? Check. Vintage instrumentation? Check. A lead singer with an...interesting voice? Check. Yup, it's The Walkmen. And with Bows + Arrows, they use all of these things (except for the cool name) to create a very, very good album. The instruments are slick and never too loud and the lead singer has a unique but interesting voice.
