Not sure what's happened to this guy. Forget brought charm with its approach of applying the cheese of new romantic to 4AD's signature (to this decade), bedroom pop style. Ever since, it seems as if there have been confused attempts to appeal to a more commercial audience perhaps as some sort of contemporary to The Weeknd, except without the voice or any kind of standout presence to pull it off? This offers a bit more restraint in its introspective approach compared to the overblown Eclipse, ... read more

A lot better than Eclipse, but far from the quality of his first two albums. If George had been making this in 1983, he could've been a superstar.

But while there are a handful of really great tunes on here that prove that Twin Shadow still has plenty of gas in the tank, why is it that I feel like he’s holding back in such a big way?

On 'Caer' George Lewis Jr., aka Twin Shadows has created songs rich with emotion and intimacy. The opening track, "Brace," starts things off strongly as Lewis' voice is used well over the top of the backing vocals and instrumentations while exploring the affects of a damaging relationship and the difficulties of escaping one. The song appears to set the tone early as a stand-out, but things drop off quite quickly over the next few tracks. 18 Years is another solid track, with some ... read more
