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.

Absolutely beautiful. Everything was good about the album, and some tracks were even perfect. There's a great variation, so it doesn't get boring at any points. The vocals are hands down amazing, both when it is solo and when it is not. A lot of feelings are being introduced throughout the album (sadness, happiness etc.), which makes it even more interesting.

Fav. tracks: Two Weeks, While You Wait For The Others, About Face
