    "haha wow sounds like they were castrated by 4ad" nailed it.

    for me, nothing will top children of desire. Time and Become What You Are are just too good

    I attended these guys' gig in Copenhagen in summer of 2013 - crowd counted like 20 people or so. I am pleased to see the development, though I liked the more edgy, "juvenile" Merchandise.

    "I Locked the Door" is my favorite. Sounds like autumn

    ATE features such uniquely otherworldly poetry that the writer's somewhat masculine-as-default mindset seems almost excusable at first listen. I could listen to the album's eponymous track all day, it's glorious. Looking Glass Waltz sounds especially like Morrissey to me.

    New album is great.

    I agree with avanillasky that it's kinda Smiths-y. Giving the old stuff a spin, yeah they are marginally more experimental here but I don't see an "unexpected direction" with the new stuff at all.

    August 2014
  • R-Mac

    In any event, I'm loving the singer's crooning voice.

    August 2014
  • R-Mac

    Did I get this band mixed up with someone else? I thought they were punk rock. Not that I'm a genre nazi or anything -- just that I thought they had a different sound.

    Album is great, it's just a rather unexpected direction for people who haven't been paying close attention. Obviously it's not better than Desire, but it's great all the same.

    i honestly don't care what critics will say and how it compares to their earlier stuff. I just think the album is beautiful and executed superbly.

    Damn....I was so looking forward to this album and I am a little undewhelmed....waaaay too tame. Nothing soars....

    Too bad they can never top "Become What You Are."

    August 2014
  • flavor_country

    v i think its better than okay, but i'm fairly conflicted about it so far, just seems to lean a little too far in one direction

    August 2014
  • matt1337c

    The new stuff sounds okay, but their getting more and more docile with every release...

    True Monument is the best song off the new album, let's be real

    Can anyone message me a download of the lp? Can't believe I can't find this

    July 2014
  • avanillasky

    Songs are less self-indulgent and more concisely written. There's less filler on this LP and songs that focus more on structure and melody. If new-wave-inspired pop isn't your thing, that's perfectly fine, but the only potentially valid criticism of this record is that it sounds more like a Morrissey record than a Merchandise record (and how is that necessarily a bad thing anyway?) And if any of these pitchfork hipster dorks give you a reason why this album is allegedly bad, those are the reasons why it's so good. I love this record and this band.

  • neckermanncj

    new album sounds more like R.E.M. than the Smiths, I dunno I love it. Sorry most of y'all can't just enjoy something

    is their frontman always a cunt - or is it only when he is in Montreal?

    I like to think In Nightmare Room is about Peter Straub's Lost Boy Lost Girl/In the Night Room.

    soo stoked for the 12"!!!!!!

  • neckermanncj

    I didn't think I'd be so excited about them signing to 4AD, but god damn. I just want them to be huge because they're too good to be relatively unknown.

  • matt1337c

    Finally, a band that worships the Jesus Mary Chain and the Smiths in equal measure, just like me!
