It's okay. There isn't anything I haven't heard before but it's fine for a boring evening.

Good and consistent album, but nothing groundbreaking. I totally get why it can remind some people of Bob Dylan or In Rainbows, but it's not in the same level IMO.

Edit: I have listened to this for the third time now and it has gone up from a 7 to an 8.

From Kurtco
Following their sensational debut in the game in 2017 with their debut album "Masterpiece", Big Thief has established itself as one of the most important bands on the American indie rock scene. Since then, their rise is unstoppable with their sublime second album named "Capacity" the following year. This year, the quartet returns in good shape and we plunge again into the inspiring and overwhelming Adrianne Lenker's songwriting. This "Unidentified Flying Object Friend" is an unidentified adventure and an opening to the world. The indie folk of the Brooklyn band connects with elegance and fluidity and recalls the beautiful "In Rainbows" by Radiohead in his approach.

8/10

Solid Album. I could definitely see this growing on me with further listens. However, for my first listen this was a slow, relaxing album. Sparse instrumentals and soft vocals aren't a bad thing but I can understand if some people are bored.
