UUUHHHH OOOOOOH

Unsurprisingly, this was one of the first indie albums I listened to and quite a lot! Over the years its grown off me quite a bit. The best moments have a lot of heart and paint vivid imagery of intamacy in my head. Especially 'Neighborhood #2' and 'Une année sans lumière' which may be some two of my all time favorite songs ever recorded! After that I feel like I'm just tolerating Win Butler and melodrama in the lyrics. 'Wake Up' to me is just glorified millennial whooping for indie kids. Overall I really enjoy half of this album while I groan at the other half. Is it important? Of course and it deserves a listen, but I don't see what makes this so special. At least not anymore.

Hot take: The Suburbs and Neon Bible are far better than this album for me

Lord Cooper, I have to agree with you! Why i don't already own those two on vinyl is beyond me, but I've found so much replay value...well at least for me personally lol

This is an album I pretty much never listen to anymore, and I still listen to the 3 follow ups on a semi regular basis, but I still feel the need to score it the highest of the 4. Guess it’s about the influence it had on me when it came out.

I can see that and honestly...same? I do that more often than not in all honesty haha! I think The Suburbs and Neon Bible just had a bigger impact on me personally. Still, I give this record a spin once or twice a year and I'm occasionally transported back to my freshman year... strange.
