This could be the closest this generation gets to its own Pet Sounds. A stunning debut then, and one that will make Fleet Foxes one of the most sought after bands of the year.


Throughout the album, the band sounds wise beyond its years, so it's not really that surprising that Fleet Foxes is such a satisfying, self-assured debut.


For all the album's winding paths and unexpected vistas, Fleet Foxes' harmonies remain the primary draw, and they've written and arranged these songs to showcase their shared vocals. 

Christmas is a special holiday, a special time to get together with the people you love, appreciate the little things in life. Take the time to let your special ones know how much they mean to you. Merry Christmas! 🎄

Very lushful and warm, it’s like if the Beach Boys went full on Folk, sure while I didn’t think every song on this album was amazing, and I do think Helplessness Blues is better, this is still a really good album.

My heart is warm now.

Fleet Foxes debut might be on of the greatest debut albums of all time. The layered instrumentation and vocals make for a completely original sound which has influenced modern folk and indie folk today. The album goes from amazing track to amazing track and it's a really beautiful album which can be exciting and fun at the same time. Favorite tracks are White Winter Hymnal, Ragged Wood and Blue Ridge Mountains.
