I adore this album. Every detail is perfect. The lyrics are super poetic and personally relatable to me. There's so much darkness and frustration at the core of the record. It's the kind of experience where I want to scream along every word and maybe cry a little.
Also, the production has the perfect blend of being accessible and creative at the same time.
My favorite album of all time

Can't wait to see them live in a couple weeks for the tenth anniversary tour for this very album!

Coming from Boston, Massachusetts (YUS!!!), Passion Pit has a bunch of surprises up their sleeves. Delivering enough catchy, melodic, and well-produced songs about love. Michael Angelakos' voice can be grating at times, though.

Fav Tracks: Little Secrets, The Reeling, Make Light, Swimming In The Flood, To Kingdom Come, Sleepyhead, Moth's Wings

Least Fav Track: Let Your Love Grow Tall

Picks: Swimming in the Flood / To Kingdom Come / Little Secrets / Moth's Wings / The Reeling / Let Your Love Grow Tall.

Michael Angelakos's voice sounds irritatingly autotuned at some moments.
