From PinkMind
When In Cold Blood and 3WW came out I was so exited about this. This could have easily been better than this is all yours or Awesome Wave. But they totally killed it with Hit me Like That Snare and one of the worst cover songs I've ever heard (Rising Sun)

Pleader is an incredible song. Have another listen.

From Ferst
This is album is the definition of a mixed bag: it has some of the best stuff alt-J has ever put out (Adeline, Deadcrush, etc), two "meh" tracks (Last Year and Pleader) and two of the worst songs they've ever made (House of the Rising Sun and Hit Me Like That Snare). I think the good of this album outweights the bad, but barely so.

Though the songs are not bad, I miss the artistic way of Alt-J's album compositions. Where is the intro? Where are the interludes? This is not really an album to me, it's just a collection of songs. Some good, some ok, some bad. I also don't really get the 'cover'

First Alt-J album which seems to be the most cohesive. I felt like the other albums were a bit all over the place - a good thing in of itself at times, but for me was a bit of a turn off somehow.

Their complete recreation of house of the rising sun was an interesting endeavor. Pretty cool to make something like that your own on a totally new song (it's not a cover).

Tracks 6 and 7 were slightly weak, but really dig the rest of the album.

Not nearly as disappoining as I first thought. 3WW is supposedly their personal favourite, but mine is Deadcrush. Adeline and other tracks also make this very likable alt j... although, also, wildly inconsistent and unsuccessful in parts.
