Didn't figure I'd see an Antlers review on AP.net.

Great review, great album.

Wow. Great review. Much better than what I've been recently over the last year on here. I listened to this record today, and I agree with you about what moving past what he dealt with before in Hospice. I find this record, however, to be hauntingly depressing and beautiful. He doesn't hint at the emotion or tip-toe around it like some artists tend to do, but instead he plunges your head into the cold bucket full of ice, and the effect is that as your inside, without breath and surrounded by cold and the muffled silence of the water, you realize its not all that bad.

Hospice is one of my favourite albums of all time, but I was slightly underwhelmed by this on first listen; I think I need to play it a lot more before I can really pass judgement though.
Good review.

Jeremy might have just fucked around and became the greatest. Great review - perfectly describes how I feel about the record. Probably my favorite album of the year so far.

I love this record and band. I really enjoy your review except I think there is too much on Hospice. Great record but there is almost as much time dedicated to that and not the new ish
