Am unbelievably serene 45 minutes of psychedelic pop that breezes into your ears but far from fails to leave an impression. Unfortunate that this album isn't as celebrated as some of the other records p4k gave such glowing reviews at the time.
Honestly, one of the most energetic, unique voices on a debut in a MINUTE. Top-to-bottom, this thing grabs your attention and doesn't let go of it. The beats for Gmail, Chippi Chippi, Mo Bamba (obviously), and Fuck Everybody are all just oppressively lit.
One of the infamous Pitchfork-core 10/10s, and you can only really get it on CD these days. However, this thing is actually very good. Just some absolute math rock, indie rock, bouncy fun. Youthful, exciting, loud.
It's a time capsule and a peak into the future at the same time. Supremely unsettling noises that sound older than time and at the same time a note of things to come. This is fantastic. It doesn't need to be said, but it deserves to be. It's impeccable.
Absolutely purified synthpop. Who knew that songs sung in such a low, uninterested voice could be THIS catchy? One or two plays through, and you'll be reaching all the way down into your lowest of registers for a chorus of "Desert Island," I guarantee it!
My first listen to this album was more fun than I can remember an inaugural listen being for an album. It's not particularly innovative or anything, but what it gets right are enthusiasm and catchiness.
Just about as good as Abbey Road, and so tied for their best work in my opinion. Truly something every music fan should at least listen to earnestly a few times. It's an experience and a moment that is as entertaining to listen to the 1st time as the 101st time.
