This could be the closest this generation gets to its own Pet Sounds. A stunning debut then, and one that will make Fleet Foxes one of the most sought after bands of the year.

Pitchfork

For all the album's winding paths and unexpected vistas, Fleet Foxes' harmonies remain the primary draw, and they've written and arranged these songs to showcase their shared vocals.

De la musique aussi "pure", c'est rare.

An all-time favorite for me. One of the most beautiful records I've ever heard. Their use of harmony is what music is supposed to sound like. A modern classic? Should definitely go down as one.

The harmony in their voices is unparalleled. Begins with a beautiful opening of a journey with Sun it Rises, focusing on the beauty of the day, closing with Oliver James, the new baby son in the song, talking about the beauty in newness of life, even seperate from simplicity, there is beauty in the detail, in life. Unbelievable album.

Fav Tracks; White Winter Hymnal, Blue Ridge Mountains, Oliver James
