Deerhunter come through with their most accessible album filled with great noise pop/shoegaze tracks. They do a fantastic job of creating this overbearing "wall of sound" throughout these tracks. I was just a bit underwhelmed by how basic this sounded compared to their previous album. I just didn't find this as rewarding as 'Cryptograms,' I guess.

Favourite tracks: Never Stops, Microcastle, Nothing Ever Happened

Not your usual indie rock album, but still flawed, especially when compared to Deerhunter's last album. Still though, one of the most intriguing albums to have been released in the last decade.

They experiment a bit less than in Cryptograms,but what they do,they do with such skill that this is an album demanding and deserving your listen.
