3.5 greatRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | January 2nd 15

Since perfecting their sound on Lost In The Dream, The War On Drugs has become one of the more prominent faces in heartland rock nowadays. Their debut, while raw and a bit underwhelming, is more charismatic and fun than the subsequent Slave Ambient and is a solid record as a whole. The first two songs, "Arms Like Boulders" and "Taking The Farm", showcase the catchier, more straightforward side of the band, whereas longer songs like "There Is No Urgency" and "Show Me a The Coast" show the bands penchant for beautifully structured, dreamy-sounding pieces. There is variety on the record, as the plethora of instruments ranging from traditional rock gear to harmonicas and violins will show you, and the band is adept at playing them all. While it does suffer from some songs that go absolutely nowhere, this record has enough great things on it to warrant a listen.
