Damn, this record is flooring me. I enjoyed Lost in a Dream but the new one is utterly terrific.

I just bought tickets for the second night in Manchester and I can't wait!

This album blows away Lost In The Dream and that was probably my favorite album of 2014.

I wasn't big on "Lost in the Dream," but really like this one.

"Strangest Thing" is a candidate for song of the year.

This album is excellent but I still put it a notch or two below "Lost in the Dream" -- a lot of the same devices and aesthetics are at play, but it's much tidier sonically and features a much clearer separation of instruments and voice, which sucks some of the mystery out of it for me. "Lost in the Dream" was like this swirling tidepool of reverb-soaked emotion, with Granduciel's voice rising up from rather than sitting on top of the music. I'm still unraveling this one, though, and already think it has at least one track ("Thinking of a Place") that is superior to anything else they've done -- it may dethrone its predecessor yet...

I agree with this 100%. Lost in a Dream was a ski album a few seasons back, though. I've yet to put this new one to the 'ski litmus test' ...

Regardless, it's still pure greatness and I can't wait to see them next month!

The clean separation of instruments and voice is what I love the most about the new album. It's so crisp (yet not over-produced) and all fits together perfectly and it makes Lost In The Dream seem a little muddy in hindsight. I'm splitting hairs here though - both albums are excellent.

This is a true statement.

This one is growing on me much like Lost in a Dream did. I think it is a wonderful complement to the prior. This does feel more grand and ambitious though, pushing what they touched on just a little further

i think i struggle listening to a full album a bit from these guys, but the standout tracks are so good

this is no longer true
