    TD (especially) and Bloom are great but they also lost some part of their distinctive laziness and minimalism there, "devotion" is still a great and accomplished thing without weaker spots (I also love that it gets sort of better in the second half)

    Even after the masterpiece of Bloom this still hits the spot.

    I tried to listen to this one, but the sound is so poor compared to Teen Dream and Bloom.

    It's such a ick-kitsch, old 70s op-shoppy feel, which is basically what Devotion sounds like anyway on musical terms. Old pawn shop keyboard, 60s reissue Silvertone/Dano guitar, a goddamn ECHOPLEX and tape delay/reverb, the 60s beachy guitar twangs and slides. The whole thing oozes that old-school vibe, which is why I love the album cover and how it embraces that. And yeah, d-a-i-s, I get you! When I first saw the artwork for Bloom I was kind of upset, it'd be so shit if they hadn't have made it glow-in-the-dark.

    I think the album cover is nice. I love the warm tone it creates although it is a bit squashed. The Bloom cover is way terrible
