What?
'I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One' is YLT's 8th studio album and pretty much comes dead middle into their long discography and is widely regarded as their crowning glory. This album is quite the beast clocking in at 68 minutes/ 16 tracks and certainly takes quite a few listens to wrap your head around everything going on. The album is extremely eclectic with slices of Lo-Fi ("Return to Hot Chicken" , "Damage" , "Shadows" , "The Lie and How We Told It") , Indi Rock ("Sugarcube" , "Deeper Into Movies" , "Moby Octopad") , 2 Cover Versions ("Little Honda" , "My Little Corner of the World") , weird ass instrumentals ( the 10 minute "Spec Bebop" , "Green Arrow" which is pretty much 6 minutes of night time Crickets ) , Bossanova ("Centre of Gravity") and Country and Western ("One PM Again")

Do I Need To Hear This Album?
If you have any interest in discovering what YLT are all about absolutely , but as an album on it's own it's a little too long and eventually wears out it's welcome once you've heard it a few times. Note: the super cute "My Little Corner of the World" is just wonderful , coming right at the end and is worth hanging around for

"What's a Yellow Tango ?" (infamous quote)

A good album from a truly unique band.
It's really very yo-la-tengoy the way they rock with both power and serenity. Such strange and enchanting combination.
Also it doesn't sound dated! And that's surprising coming from the 90s.

A little long, but I love Yo La Tengo, so that's not the worst thing. Would love a little more variation, but otherwise, I love how experimental and warm this record is. Maybe my third or fourth favorite of theirs.

'Damage' and 'Green Arrow' are chill givers. Love 'Autumn Sweater' and 'The Lie and How We Told It' as well.

From buzzdainer 09/19/2016 19:23
I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One proved that Yo La Tengo could master any pop style, from bossanova swoon to pedal steel alt-country twang to a droning guitar swirl that verges on shoegaze. Funny that most of the arguments about this album center on whether or not it's shoegaze, since clearly there's a bit of My Bloody Valentine's influence here, but there's also much more to this album than that. Here Yo La Tengo aspire to be the greatest indie rock, noise-collage, electronica collective ever, but it's also true that more than anything, they're just being themselves. And they were making albums that sounded a little like this dating way back to the mid-eighties.

If this is shoe gaze... then I like it better than loveless, to be honest.

Very good album though the 10 minute long Space Bebop is unnecessary.

Favorite Tracks: Sugarcube, Shadows, Stockholm Syndrome, Autumn Sweater, Little Honda, Center Of Gravity

Having already produced their best with Electr-O-Pura, Yo La Tengo decide that the next logical step is to attempt everything on I Can Hear the Heart. Despite the seemingly unfocused nature, this ultimately leads to what could be considered their most accessible album. It's hard to find a 90s genre not tackled on this album, and just when you think you've heard it all, Ira produces what could be one of the greatest "classic rock" guitar solos of all time on the cleverly titled "We're an American Band". Other highlights include the endearing "Autumn Sweater" and haunting "Shadows".
