I love Perfect From Now On, but I think this one may be every bit as good.

From WaitAndSeer 02/25/2019 21:45
For me, this album takes the expansive, adventurous sound of Perfect From Now On and compresses it into its most compact, perfect form. Brimming with melodic invention and some of Doug Martsch’s tightest songwriting, every track on Keep It Like a Secret is a knockout in its own way. It hooked me from my very first listen, years ago, and I’m still playing it today. Easily one of my all-time favorites!

I'm not normally a big shoegaze fan, but this album really stands out. Historic, essential and monumental indie for a reason.

When I worked on my crappy college radio show, there were a tonne of indie bands that sounded like Built to Spill. Is that why I don't find this album that interesting?

From Brad1770 05/26/2018 01:34
The best thing one can do is mine the BTS catalogue and 'Keep It Like A Secret ' is another gem to uncover . The tracks here are more concise than previous releases creating a more accessible / punchy listen

Barring "Else" every track here is outstanding and classic BTS

Whilst "You Were Right" quoting Pink Floyd , Marley , Led Zep , Kansas ..... just to name a few plus the 8 minute "Broken Chairs" (with cool whistling section) are modern classics and 2 of the best ever BTS tracks

High , highly recommended album

'Keep It Like A Secret ' should not be kept a secret

While not being as good as their 2 previous efforts, it still manages to get me so excited. 8.4/10.

May not be the epic classic that Perfect From Now On was, but it is more fun.
