Should've been a cover band... hehe. I mean it isn't bad, but it feels like they studied up on how to get certain sounds, etc. instead of doing their own thing. Totally agree that Lonerism is much more interesting. Having said that, for a 2010s album, it could be worse.

It's quite samey, and it draws too heavily on it's influences, but it still is enjoyable enough to merit a listen every once in a while.

While I admire the skill on display here, it strikes me as something of a pointless exercise.

As others have said, this is nothing new. Not that sounding like other artists is always a bad thing but Lonerism was so much more interesting and diverse. This feels overproduced and uninspired, as if it's just banking off the success of other recent neo psych records. Like they're the Oasis of 21st century psychedelic rock. Also, I know psychedelic lyrics are often abstract and such, but these are just terrible. Like they're trying way too hard to be profound, some of them are like a parody of the genre.

Shelter Song & Keep In The Dark are great songs and the first half is pretty decent, but the second half just sounds too samey w the exception of Colors To Life. Despite that, I look forward to their next album.
