As a longtime Grizzly Bear fan, I am so disappointed with the new album. Am I seriously the only one? I mean it's not bad, but it's the first album they've put out where I don't have at least one song I'm absolutely in love with. Just so underwhelming.
This band and the album Yellow House is a very lucky discovery from nowhere for me. Saw their name on sputnikmusic and now I have the YH album. After the first listen all songs sound great and I like how arty and experimental it is. I also like how the drums sound and all the small details in every song.
The new album is very uneven, sadly. Why they put a bland and simplistic song such as Mourning Sound on the record and promoted it as a single is beyond me! I like Three Rings and Neighbors quite a bit, though.
graças a jupiter gb voltou madurezimo. nao caiu na ladainha dos criticos com o shields e voltou muito mais revigorado do que antes. eles deram essa respirada de cinco anos mas valeu a pena, essa banda é uma banda que amadureceu e hoje é completamente capaz de pintar a melodia que quiser com muita delicadeza, e sem perder a identificação o que é lindo.
