Man Down by the River and Cowgirl in the Sand, those are the songs that taught me how to solo on the guitar. I've been listening to this since I was a little kid and it all still sounds so fresh to me but still so familiar. My favorite Neil Young album.

Best James Blake album since the debut. Doesn't get bogged down like Colour in ANything did, doesn't get too glitchy and non-melodic like the back side of Overgrown. Features are perfect; just the right amount, hit great tones and play in to JB's production style wonderfully. Best hooks James has had in a while as well.

The Mint is song of the year. This album is incredible. The production wraps you up and confines you into such a space, Earl's mind, the life he's living right now, this small space of his life, and his bars cut so hard and are so no-nonsense, no beat wasted, the lo-fi production right now sounds so fucking great next to the oversaturation of really clean trap production, damn this is the kinda album you don't know you needed til you get it. I didn't realize I hadn't really been so excited ... read more

I loved this album in high school and I think it holds up decently. Dan Schwartz is a very good guitarist and the band obviously know eac hother and each other's voices very well, leading to really tight harmonies.

I reviewed in college for the Rice Thresher and now write for the Berkeley B Side. Indie rocker at heart, though fan of all genres (except metal).
