I'm not usually one to go and rate soundtracks right away, but this one really stood out and set the tone for what will easily go down as one of cinema's most iconic pieces. Please, please, please check the movie out as soon as you can, you will not regret it.

She's finally found her artistic identity and I am very glad this is what she's settled on. What a treat!

Holy shit, this is so much better than I remembered. Thank you. Very nice, Elliott. :)

This is so inoffensive and safe. I appreciate that he wanted to go a little more pop on this record, but it's a shame that has to be at the cost of any intent to set himself apart from the pack. Nothing here I found to be particularly bad, but nothing here really engaged with me either... I still enjoy 'Circles' though, but it's not like that's a song that won't wear very thin very quickly. Shame.

haha, I prefer atmorsphere - you can't help but pronounce it in an upper crust accent, I'm all for changing the spelling officially

Also, I have been listening to the Angel Olsen and my verdict was similar - about four songs I really liked, the rest haven't really put in those hooks yet

You guessed it! - the 3 out of 5 RYM rating aka the AOTY NR. It has some excellent songs on it but overall I wasn't so taken by the album as a whole.

Should I listen again? What's your take on it?

I haven’t given up in the idea that it’ll be both very different and somehow superior to UFOF - I’m an optimist! I do like the new track a lot. I don’t think I can remember if a band have ever released two albums I consider 90%+ quality in a single year :/

Can imagine it being great live, I like those shows where they play an album in full - very different band but I saw Soundgarden play 'Superunknown' in full and that was incredible which was a little bit of a surprise to me.

I gave 'Ideal Crash' another go today and it had grown on me again - I count two classics in 'Sister Dew' and 'Instant Street' but a few more impressed me a lot. Solid album, just off the 8 out of 10.

I tried the Deus album, really brought it back - remembered most of the songs. A great album but maybe the quality wasn’t sustained enough to go over a high 7/10.

I also tried the debut again and similarly that has some really excellent songs and a few more mediocre ones.

I’ve never tried the second album so that’s next on the list ;D

That's a blast from the past, I actually had a CD copy in '99 and have it sitting on a 6/10 rating on RYM but hands up...I've not listened to it for over 10 years. Will see if I can bump up the rating.

The ratings psychic link between us builds...

Ah no I’m not worried with anyone liking what I like, before or after I get to it, just pleased there’s someone here I have a load of taste overlap with. I’ll keep an ear out for something I think you’ll like that no one else here seems to get ;D
