Silly me for reviewing the aoty without reviewing its best song. The first half of "Dive" is 7 in a nutshell - traditional Beach House with a slightly inorganic twist backed by a repeating track of some synth-like instrument that's not immediately identifiable. The back half is a pure jam sesh between what sounds like multiple basses and guitars, all leading to the climax at the end which is an abrupt stop that comes far too soon. Thusly, "Dive" leaves you begging for more.

This is the first and only song I have ever heard from Beach House, and after listening to this, it definitely won't be the last.

I look at the comments and say "you people are crazy"

I listen and I am blown away

The second half sounds a lot like New Order. Thankfully better than Lemon Glow, which wasn't bad, but sounded way too commercial for me
