What's perhaps the most remarkable thing about the truly remarkable Veckatimest, however, is how very exciting much of it is; no small feat for a painstaking chamber-pop record that never once veers above the middle tempo.

PopMatters

The band has swapped out the six-minute epics of Yellow House for a greater number of shorter works, packed with just as many concepts but integrated with more skill and with more respect for the pieces as holistic edifices containing a single incredible idea at each of their centers.

A pleasant spectacle. The vocals are spot on, and the gentle vibe creates a chilling sense.

One of the best albums of the 2000s as far as I'm concerned. 2009, man... what a year.

They do it for themselves and that's something really nice
