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.

It takes time to grow, but once you're done with the comprehension process, it really rewards you. Finally they stoped from being the Paul Simon copycat act and started to build over it. It's much more deep than their previous efforts. It's a very postmodern pice of work, reflecting the somewhat strange life of our, still, very human way of living life in a soulless world. Exquisite. It may sounds funny, but I think it is. Haha. A future classic for sure.

Another fine album from Vampire weekend and quite possibly their best. Consistently inventive, but always with enough melidy to make it memorable and accessible. Good stuff.

Its a shame the album sort of falls a part after Hannah Hunt because the first six songs are fantastic. I find the last six are a bit hit and miss.
