Mac's most relaxing release yet. I love to put this one on with friends or alone and just take it super easy. He writes very well and his use of synthesizer adds some much needed colour to the record. It's a standout in the over-saturated jangle pop market.

If you like Mac Demarco, this album will make you happy. For me, I don't mind it, but it's kinda more of the same as what he's done before - maybe a little more dreamy and spacey.

More consistent than either 2 or Salad Days, though standouts aren't quite as brilliant. Overall, a very fine record easily on a par with his earlier releases.

This is a fine album, but it is a bit vanilla compared to his older music. Seems like a step into a more mainstream sound.

Mac Demarco is an artist that I have always enjoyed. His albums are always pleasant enough to listen to, and even more so, his personality is just infectious. That being said, this is the first of his albums that goes above and beyond just being a good listen. You can hear him really going outside his comfort zone on this one, though it's not revolutionary or experimental by any stretch of the imagination, but I think he really shines when he puts his own honesty to music rather than trying to be trendy. This is very much his Plastic Ono Band effort, which works nicely as he has cited that album as one of his favorites.

I was looking forward to this release and expected it to be good like all his other work, but the result truly surpassed all my expectations. Looking forward to seeing where Mac goes from here.
