  • love this album <3
  • Album's great.
  • Love this album, came here to read comments from all the other people that love this album, saw that some people actually dislike this album... what the fuck
  • Beirut has changed about as much as M83, though I know they are apples to oranges. Both albums are extremely good. If you are judging an artist based on how complex it is, go listen to 8-bit.
  • I have no idea why there is so much negativity around this album. This album is my personal favorite. The still have those loud blazing horns. Coupled with simply amazing melodies, this album turns out into a definite masterpiece.
  • I'm with those less keen on this album. For me it sounds more like a standard indie band throwing in a few less common elements, rather than the organic whole that Beirut have previously created. That said, Goshen, the t/t and maybe Santa Fe are still as great as before. But in general, the sound just doesn't cut it like before.
  • What happened to the proud, blaring horns, the complex arrangements? Why the watered down piano? I really miss their old sound. [5] I like that they decided to go in a simpler direction, but it feels like a step back from their earlier stuff.
