West Coast natives Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti present Mature Themes, the follow-up to 2010’s hugely successful album, Before Today.

Before Today was the band’s 4AD debut, offering the first sign that the intriguingly scatalogical music Ariel had been making for over a decade was finally ossifying into a coherent form.

Indeed, the lead song from Before Today - ... Read more in Amazon's Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed genius? 28 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was the first hearing of Ariel's music for me, after reading various bits about it. Having listened to this a few times, I can sort of see what the fuss is about, in that the hooks really get into you after a bit. Interesting tunes and words. Maybe I'm too oldskool, but the sound quality on this disc is so bad that it does detract from the enjoyment of the music for me. Yeah, he recorded it on cassette in his room etc, but so did lots of other artists back in the heyday of cassette multitracking, and the best of them sounds way better that Mr Pink's efforts, sonically that is. Not many would match his writing and arranging talents though, and ultimately that is what matters of course!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real glimpse into one man's psyche 21 Oct 2006
By J. Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ariel Pink recorded this record by himself. The songs are his vision of what good music is. There is a decidedly 60's feel to the record. He recorded this record using a home 8-track tape machine. But to fans of uninhibited artistic expression (in bands such as early Pink Floyd/Syd solo and early Velvet Underground), this record will sound like a breath of fresh air in today's environment. This is not to say the music is uninteresting, or too low-fi to really get into. The soundscapes that Ariel creates are quite remarkable and unique. The songs vary from quirky pop and heartfelt soul to stoner rock and experimental noise control. Check out "Helen" or "West Coast Calamities" to get a quick taste of the world of Ariel Pink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everytime I sit down and try / I get interesting results 20 Aug 2009
By Eric Cartier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It astonishes me that I've only owned this album for two months. The melodies are so infectious I feel as though I known them most of my life. And, despite their intentionally lo-fi production (damaged/muffled sound) and sometimes schizoid arrangments, these songs are genuinely good and often moving. This album is the perfect gateway to the bizarre and brilliant sonic realm of Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent strangeness! 27 Feb 2013
By Kenneth Winland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant. Odd. Approachable. Aloof.

This one has it all!

This was the first Ariel Pink album that I heard, and I fell instantly in love with the music At first I thought that it was some bizarre Brian Eno side-project from the early/mid-1970s that I somehow had missed.


'House Arrest' on the one hand pays homage to retro and low-fi esthetics, but on the other hand is new with fresh(albeit odd) lyrics and song stylings. This album is NOT an attempt to cash-in or ape the low-fi fad nor is it a simple copy of the 1970s sound. This album is a UNIQUE experience from a rather talented musician.

THAT said, be aware of what you are getting into! This is not for shallow pop sensibilities nor is it for joke/comedy music collectors.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best 20 Jan 2011
By alex ar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There is no tastier music than that of Ariel Pink and for me this album is the tastiest. His psychedelic pop audio streams flow out of my speakers and bounce around the room enriching my life and the lives of those around me. His songs are untainted by anyone elses input in nearly every aspect allowing for complete self-indulgence and it is oh so good. I recommend listening to this one from start to finish (Worn Copy as well, but that's another story) because no sonic journey is shinier and more impactful than that of House Arrest in it's entirety.

I bid you good day.
