A beautifully produced album that sounds stellar and brings with it a constantly brimming tone, one of which can easily be put to the background and allowed to fill the room or your ears. However, where it exceeds in its sonic clarity it lacks in many other aspects necessary to propel it forward as an excellent release.

The majority of these songs sound nearly identical, assisting in the flow of the overall product but hampering it in terms of allowing tracks to stand out or feeling like there ... read more

I'm admittedly coming in blind to Suddenly. As my musical taste has started to expand over the last few years, Caribou is a consistent and respected artist who has yet to grace my ears up to this moment.

The stories in themselves are enjoyable and weave together, but don't have the same requisite sensation that came with the debut.

Even if the album fails to have that same sense of urgency, Songs from a Room is a great ... read more

Leonard Cohen is an absolute force on his debut record, Song of Leonard Cohen. His greatest asset is his songwriting ability and his story-like lyricism. In fact, Cohen may be one of the most essential songwriters of his time, right up there with folk contemporary Bob Dylan, even if his songwriting style is clearly quite different and unique to Cohen. Although his voice is not quite as memorable as that of Dylan, his tone is perhaps even more inviting and accessible, yet maintains an important ... read more
