While the overall sound is massive, it’s become somewhat restricted in tone and texture, most tracks careering towards climaxes of cacophonous synth whines and heavy rock guitars, a narrower palette than on previous albums.

If in the past you’ve admired Vampire Weekend from a distance, this is the album that should have you falling in love with them.

These songs instinctually shy away from grandstanding or big gestures; every time you think they’re headed for a fist-pumping chorus, they’ll veer off, or Berninger will shrug off the gravity with a lyrical clown move delivered in deadpan.

12. Prefab Sprout - Crimson/Red

It's a genius pop album by a genius pop singer-songwriter.

9. Arctic Monkeys - AM

AM ... feels a considerably more self-assured album: heavy in a dramatic and confident way, conceptually strong, and not without groove.

6. Roy Harper - Man and Myth

6 reviews

3. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Push the Sky Away

February 18, 2013

As by his own admission he’s more of a voyeuristic, narrative songwriter than an emotional miner: here, the music fills in the unwritten emotional content lurking behind his observations.
