I'm really trying to get into Vampire Weekend, but I just can't seem to. I'm usually able to appreciate anything with such favorable reviews, but I guess it's just not my cup of tea. That being said, I like the band's overall aura/aesthetic.

I resisted listening to Modern Vampires of the City for a while, perhaps because it was so universally acclaimed it felt like a cliché for a while, and perhaps because I liked Vampire Weekend's self-titled debut but the sheen wore off considerably for me with Contra, which struck me as vastly inferior. But this one eventually made it onto some of my playlists, thanks especially to the excellent "Hannah Hunt," which captures beautifully the secret language new lovers share: "Our days were long our nights no longer / Count the seconds, watching hours / Though we live on the US dollar / You and me, we got our own sense of time." I love that, and I think it's an especially great achievement for a band that I thought had tapped out all its ideas after its first album.

There might be disagreement about whether or not this is the best album of the year (2013), or even if it's the best Vampire Weekend album, in terms of lyrical content and music. But one thing is irrefutable - the production quality on this is on-point! Especially on tracks like "Step" and "Hannah Hunt", where subtler features manifest with better headphones or speakers.

I did always find that I liked the themes of catholic theology mixed in with the baroque meets 90s hip-hop mix of instrumentals. It's something unique. Other than that I don't really have much more to add. Koenig & Co. have some excellent points & material to get across and they do it justice in the way only Vampire Weekend could. I can see why people say this particular one "pushes-the-envelop" because it does make some changes over their established formula through their debut & Contra.

Maybe they pushed the envelope a little too far with some of the production on this album. Makes me think they should put out an album more than every 4 or 5 years while they're in their prime, because they are really capable of putting out good music, consistently

Absolutely love the album though it is a bit too sweet for me at some points.
