As a huge Boris fan I wish I could rate this higher; it is not one of the worst modern Boris albums and I have been looking forward to it ever since the single was released.

(Sandy) Alex G's latest album is a truly unique indie folk album, dominated primarily by a twisted dark sounding neo-psychedelia, which somehow works perfectly with the country/Americana influence that is mixed in sporadically throughout. What really gives this album its edge is the production: crystal clear, lending just the right weight to everything and mixing it just right to give it the dreamlike quality that makes ... read more
