One of the first albums I fell in love with. Stands the test of time eight years later.

This album is a perfect blend of music nerdiness, sarcastic humor, and real emotion genuinely expressed. KV is one of today's great songwriters imo and doesn't get nearly enough credit.

Super laidback feel. I can see the ties to War On Drugs. Pleasant throwback music.

His previous album was released to critical acclaim and earned him comparisons to Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty. I don't get those comparisons at all; his stuff is too lo-fi and consistently dark. If pressed, I'd say he's most akin to Lou Reed (the solo version).

I would imagine that if a member of Fleet Foxes decided to leave and make their own solo album, it would sound like this album. With a voice that sounds like Devendra Banhart and Lou Reed had a baby, Kurt Vile has created quite an interesting album. A great folk-rock album that has bits of multiple bands in it, but also has a uniqueness to it. Very dreamy sounding folk, which is not really something I come across often in folk music. The only other time I’ve really heard a dreamy, ethereal sound to folk music is from Fleet Foxes. And it’s been working pretty well for them. That’s why I like this album. It’s pleasant to listen to but it also has an interesting quality to it. It’s simple, but complex at the same time. And it’s quite good.

Not as brilliant as "Childish Prodigy", still a great album with some major songs. "Jesus Fever" is an outstanding song.

Decided to give this another listen after just hearing his new record. I haven't tired of this one yet.

I like this album a lot. I hear some Zep 3, some Sister Morphine, but Kurt makes it all his own. This will probanly make my chart at some point.

Very avarage. It is not so emotional album , you don't want to switch off your CD but you don't want to listen to it once again.
