Amazing emotions conveyed in this album. "I of the Storm" and "Wolves Without Teeth" are amazing, apart from touching "Organs", vibrant "Slow Life" and distinctive "Thousand Eyes". The rest I found generic of the band and the bonus tracks a bit unnecessary, but nothing that harms the album.
Very good and exciting!

This is an insanely pleasant and charming mainstream indie pop record. The back and forth between a male and female vocalist is greatly executed and the beautiful production compliments their voices. If any band could carry the torch for indie pop, OMAM is a prime candidate.

Best: Crystals, Human, Hunger, Wolves Without Teeth, Empire, Organs, We Sink

Worst: Slow Life

A LITTLE BIT BETTER THAN DEBUT, BUT STILL THE CRAP TYPE OF INDIE.

One of my favorite albums by a band who decided to veer completely away from their roots. They were known as an indie folk band and started making dramatic, atmospheric tunes filled with complicated, humanistic lyrics.
^which are all things that I love. While I feel bad for fans of the band, it's unapologetically one of my favorite albums of the past few years.
