From Kurtco
The comeback we had been waiting for since January was Vampire Weekend. It is clear that their three albums have marked the history of indie rock including the classic "Modern Vampires Of The City". Those who were expecting a logical continuation of "Modern Vampires of The City" will be disenchanted. The album is at the crossroads of baroque pop and psychedelic folk passing by other influences for a final result that can be disorganized but which is more and more charming over repeated listening. With these 18 songs for less than an hour of music, some will see a spontaneity a little too raw but it is important to applaud the audacity of Vampire Weekend to reinvent itself after six years of absence. Not at the same level as their three predecessors but certainly an important record of their discography.

7/10

Best track: "Harmony Hall"

This may go down as my favorite album of theirs. If you put the music of Paul Simon, Primal Scream, and the Avett Brothers in a blender, you’d get something similar to Father of the Bride.

Starts really well. Then it just tails off and didn't hold my attention. Shame, considering how good the first few tracks are.

Never been a favourite of mine, but I try as they seem to be well liked around here. This album doesn't help me se any greatness in Vampire Weekend. La la la radiomusic with nothing to remember but an ok happy feeling.

From boppare
VV still know how to make top-quality pop without reservations, and if anything, they've perfected their craft even further on their latest release. If it can be compared to the White Album, it's White Album made by Paul Simon in his prime. A bit stripped down compared to their previous work, but not any less catchy. The Melanesian choir I've always loved from "Thin Red Line" is sampled within the first minute, and it gets better from there.

If you pay attention to the songwriting, though, it's a reflection of the difficult times we find ourselves in. In fact, I caught myself thinking that some of the duets with Haim could well become wedding dance staples, if not for the lyrics, for they are hardly "sunny". Harmony Hall in particular is existential angst in this age of increasing hate, that we have all experienced by now, even if we don't share Ezra's heritage. What he has to say is more direct and relevant than being bored on Cape Cod ten years ago. This is where pop music needs to be right now.
