Absolutely love the album though it is a bit too sweet for me at some points.

It takes time to grow, but once you're done with the comprehension process, it really rewards you. Finally they stoped from being the Paul Simon copycat act and started to build over it. It's much more deep than their previous efforts. It's a very postmodern pice of work, reflecting the somewhat strange life of our, still, very human way of living life in a soulless world. Exquisite. It may sounds funny, but I think it is. Haha. A future classic for sure.

Another fine album from Vampire weekend and quite possibly their best. Consistently inventive, but always with enough melidy to make it memorable and accessible. Good stuff.

Its a shame the album sort of falls a part after Hannah Hunt because the first six songs are fantastic. I find the last six are a bit hit and miss.

There's not a whole lot that impresses me with music these days, but I love this album. One of the best albums over the last 10 years.

I surprised myself in putting this at the very top. Really, the "best album of all time"? Well, I'll just say that if the guiding principles of The Beatles, Paul Simon, Radiohead and Spoon mean anything (which they do in my book), then Vampire Weekend has somehow synthesized the pop/rock band, singer-songwriter, album-as-art elements so well as to give us this absolute gem, with perfect or near-perfect song from very beginning to very end.

In some ways, I surprise myself by placing this as the Best Album of All Time. But that may change after I hear Kanye's SWISH.


OK, probably not.

Best Vampire Weekend album easily. Expands on what they've done previously without missing a beat.
