Pitchfork

The resulting 2xCD set captures urgent and imaginative songs that reorganize 4AD haze, off-kilter indie pop, crashing garage-punk, forward-leaning krautrock, and hypnotic Kranky ambience into a singular-sounding call-to-arms.

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, Nothing Ever Happened, Twilight at Carbon Lake

A lot of parts seemed a bit TOO slow but then again I'm a bit tired--
still a very climatic and hazardous album at times; "Nothing Ever Happened" was stupendous.

sublime indie excellence, very talented songwriters and musicians, an album of mood swings, a group that should be huge
