There are no eargasms along the lines of "Hyperballad", "Bachelorette", or "5 Years", but the whole thing is agreeable.

The Field - From Here We Go Sublime
April 3, 2007
Critic Score

8 reviews

From Here We Go Sublime is brilliant in that it encapsulates many of the best ideas in the genre from at least the last 20 years. For this reason, it's an album that has the potential to transcend the obsessive nomenclature that seems to confine electronic artists and labels; a malaise that seems to affect electronic music in particular.

Could Neon Bible actually best their stunning 2004 debut? Yes. On Funeral, the band wrestled with death and its aftermath. Here, they look outward at the world from, and this is crucial, an American perspective.

In Rainbows ... comes from a more composed place in their personal and musical pantheon, creating an unassuming but worthy addition to their revered discography.
