It wears its influences on its sleave, but at the same time this album sounds incredibly original and new. Id call this some kind of marriage between Heartland Rock/shoegaze/indie rock/synth pop, though it doesnt really delve to deep in any one area. This album is perfect in every way. The production, the song writing, the raw emotion. War on Drugs struck gold on this record. From the opening tapping pattern of "Under the Pressure" to the closing sweeping epic "In Reverse", theres never a dull moment

This album came somewhat out of nowhere for me. When it came out, my expectations were modest, as I'd heard Adam Granduciel and company's previous release, Slave Ambient, and thought it was competent but not particularly interesting--maybe even a little boring, with its sprawling, extended guitar noodling and Dylanesque song structures. A number of the tracks felt to me like interludes meant to fill space between songs, rather than proper songs unto themselves. Lost in the Dream, however, has none of these limitations, and in fact most of the songs feel like emotionally complex compositions unto themselves. It is genuinely affecting, reverb-heavy heartland rock, and I mean that as high praise. As good as this is, it was just a taste of what was to come, as A Deeper Understanding is one of the truly great albums of the 2010s.

Type of shit that could really resonate with people on an overnight interstate drive, barely clinging to their wakefulness and sanity via excessive amounts of prozac and No Doze caffeine pills. That's a super specific example but for me thats what this record sounds like. And let's not forget just how well Granduciel melds heartland rock with psychedelia and shoegaze. Lost in the Dream is a seriously impressive effort.

The first half is spectacular and nearly flawless. The second half starts to feel a little more generic and less atmospheric as far as the production which loses my interest a bit as the album goes on. Lyrically and vocally fantastic.

Incredible at first listen, but the impact devolves in future listens by songs that doesn´t evolve that much and last over 7 minutes throughout the album.

Now I know why I don't really cling to this album, as a whole. On "A deeper understanding" he a lot of times sounds like Bryan Adams, but on this one he mostly copy Bob Dylan's way of, especially, ending each sentences. A bit of a copycat?

I guess he's naturally more a beerrocker and he sounds more unforced on "A deeper understanding" than sometimes on this album.

This album although has a few songs he later can't match, for sure...

 Great to see how they developed from a band among others and forgotten to really great.

Hard work can take you there, as well as new faces in life. Maturity or something like that. You can find the magic later. Often it's just a youth brilliance debut from a band, and then not so much.
