Darker but somehow more accommodating than their self-entitled debut. Dying to her this year's "Crack-Up".

"I was raised up believing I was somehow unique / Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes, unique in each way you can see / And now after some thinking, I'd say I'd rather be / A functioning cog in some great machinery serving something beyond me." So begins this album's fantastic title track, a song that may sum up the peculiar situation of the millenial generation. I'm not a millenial, but to a degree I think we can all identify with that final sentiment: that our culture rewards individual achievement when what really delivers meaningful happiness is a sense that we're part of something larger than ourselves. I've never seen Fleet Foxes live, and I'm not sure if I ever will with the band on indefinite hiatus, but I'd like to sing that song at the top of my lungs in a room full of people.

A very consistent record. The quality is high.
The choir harmonies are somehow expected, since they didn't evolve much since the last records and also the guitar work could have been more interesting, but the precussion tones are rich and beautifully combined and the overall sound/mix is very stimulating and vivid.

Good follow up to the debut. Helplessness blues, isn't quite as tight and focused as the first album, but repeated listens brings out it's qualities. Just a tad below the debut.

This album motivated me to learn how to play acoustic guitar during my freshman year of high school. The greatest indie/folk album of the past ten years.

Fleet Foxes aren't just trying to make us feel good. They can go deeper, and I hope they keep going.
