Wish these guys had the same exposure as bands like Modest Mouse because they are just as good.

It combines indie and noise rock in a really awesome way. The combination of experimentation with traditional indie music leads to a fantastic sound. There are some great moments with the string sections and the guitar played in reverse on "Unstrustable/Part 2 (About Someone Else)". The lyricism is great as well. I love the way Doug Martsh structures his lyrics. It gives each song a dynamic sense of purpose and direction. Not only this, but they're very poetic and authentic sounding. At times, this album feels conversational. This adds a significantly more personal element to it, which adds so much volume and dimension to an already personal and introspective album. I was captivated from the first lyrics of "Randy Described Eternity", and to be honest I've rarely heard eternity described better than how Randy describes it.

First time listening to anything except for ancient melodies. Might come back to this, might just think of it as a nice ride. Didn't connect with the whole thing.

I Would Hurt A Fly was fantastic though.

Not my favorite BTS album. I find that Doug Martsch vocals don't quite match what the album was going for. It sound sort of out of place to me

There's a tie between this and Keep It Like a Secret as my favorite BtS record. Both are absolutely flawless and perfect, but in different ways. Every song on the album is out-of-this-world good. Especially Made-Up Dreams, Velvet Waltz, and Kicked It in the Sun. Doug Martsch is a genius.
