This is one of the best albums I have got in the last couple of years. It sounds great on headphones, and the tunes are heartbreakingly beautiful. A lot of bands get comapred to the Beach Boys, and they have harmonies but not really great melodies. This album has both! The production is very rich and dense, and the vocal layers are gorgeous. I bought this over a year ago and I am still playing it every couple of weeks. If you like Animal Collective, Atlas Sound, Beach Boys, Mercury Rev, you will love this LP. I really cannot recommend it highly enough!
