Julian Casablancas is indeed the saddest robot of the 21st century.
This album is terrific, the way the boys situate themselves in a history of dance music while also pushing it forward feels almost too perfect. There are bops and bangers for days. 'Doin' it Right' is the surreal party anthem I need, Panda Bear's vocals are just what I want at the end of this album. This is the type of record I hope becomes an iconic 2010s album. It feels like an object of our times, one that understands how we got here and has some advice for the future. It is really good.
