Listen, with artwork that good, you know you're gonna be in from a treat the moment the first notes of Reprise hit you. A phenomenally paced, wonderfully produced, and beautifully performed album. There is variety yet coherence, there is light and shade, there are soft songs and bold, brash, carnivals of music.

The best of the Acts -- Act IV trades some rawness in production for a more varied soundscape. The integration of orchestral instrumentation into the fold is an absolute delight, with Casey Crescenzo's trademark poetic (some would argue pretentious) lyricism laid over top. Waves should be a pop hit, and A Night on the Town may be Dear Hunter's magnum opus.

Highly highly recommend for anyone into the progressive rock scene.
