Not a single bad song on here. Great from beginning to end. Nothing really groundbreaking just flawless execution throughout.

Revisited this after enjoying Twin Fantasy. I'll be honest I initially wrote it off after my requisite 3 listens when this came out in '16 as this grungy / punky lo-fi indie rock noise.

Now that I listen again after a renewed interest in music with a similar sound I can say Car Seat Headrest is pretty great and this is a really good album. There's some Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, Nirvana, White Stripes, Brand New etc. and then of course the numerous bands that influenced those bands. In my opinion at least a few of the aforementioned bands are a bit overrated and underinspired relative to the collective praise they get. So sue me if I initially thought "oh another one of those bands" upon finding these guys, but Car Seat Headrest actually impresses me in offering some songwriting and guitar work that is more interesting than even that some of those bands that have wildly widespread critical and commercial acclaim.

They add a bit of value to the genre that is dying off arguably for good reason. What I think really differentiates Car Seat Headrest is that while the sound is aggressive the songs are actually not. He is slow to develop the songs and takes the time needed to build and grow them vs. just having a melody followed by a guitar hook and some power chords. There's a lot of effort and detail put into every measure. It can border on repetitive but he's usually diligent enough to know when we've heard a chord progression or part of a chorus just enough then move on to something new or a bridge or something.

Overall a good release by a good band. If there's someone to (again) resurrect this sound from the dead and make it relevant then why not Car Seat Headrest?

Only nudged out by Bowie for the best album of 2016. Fill In The Blank will last to be one of my favourite songs of the decade.

Alright, but not even close to the level of Twin Fantasy or Nervous Young Man.

The youth album of the year, very good songs, but there are a couple of missteps like the intro of Vincent that make the album feel really long.

Pretty incredible stuff. The Ballad of Costa Concordia is an instant classic

This album perfectly embodies the struggles that many teens face, such as depression, drug abuse, and the inability to adapt to adult life. Will Toledo manages to include lyrics that are both endearing and relatable. Although it's very difficult to choose a favorite lyric from an album as well-written as Teens of Denial, I'd say this is my favorite passage:

"If only I could sustain my anger
Feel it grow stronger and stronger
It sharpens to a point and sheds my skin
Shakes off the weight of my sins
And takes me to heaven"

8.5/10

This is the type of music I think of when I think Matador Records. Will Toledo's musings on youthful, millenial abandon and anxiety fit perfectly between the tender pop cuts of Yo La Tengo and the batshit crazy, face-melting rock of Guided by Voices. And yet, with all these influences at his disposal, he still manages to write an album that is entirely him. From front to back.
It would be incorrect to pair him so hastily with Courtney Barnett. The only similarities the two share is their obvious musical and lyrical prowess, as well as an unflinching knack for self-deprecation. However, Barnett could only wish she could write indie rock this clever, catchy and timeless.
