From Tilly 04/03/2017 18:59
I’m not going to fight it. I’m addicted to the sparkling, candy colored songs of Beach House. Beach House go full-on arena-sized for this album. Launching the grandeur of the Cocteau Twins straight to the upper rafters. I completely give in to its waves of Cure and Loveless-era MBV guitars washing over me. I’m no longer Tilly. I'm just a rag doll. Letting myself drift effortlessly wherever the waves take me. These are the songs I play to beat back the doldrums when they’re nipping at my heels. To kick them off and instead reach to the heavens and sing and shout that I can still make it despite it all.

Grade: A. This is Beach House at their poppiest. And pop is a surprisingly good fit for them. I still prefer their sound when it’s little rougher around the edges and the guitar cuts a little bit more deeply such as on Thank Your Lucky Stars. But, it’s still essential Beach House and definitely one of the best dream pop albums of the last decade.

Even dreamier than Teen Dream. It's easy to sink into. It's odd that the first three are the top rated tracks; I find that to be the weakest part of the album

A modern classic, defining the "dream-pop" genre. Gorgeous.

An instant classic.
The best Beach House records, the melodies flows on psychedelic music.

Great job, maybe a little better than Teen Dream

A good sound but the album as a whole is repetitive. No particular standout track.

Better than teen dream. Although it´s not a masterpiece it surely starts like one. Beautiful album.

Seems to be a more 'busy' sound than Teen Dream. Still good, but I like the previous album more. This is growing on me.
