this album is is strange. it's like listening to the likes of Thursday's "waiting" and The murder of Rosa Luxemburg's "everyones in love and flowers pick themselves" at the same time.

As a lover of vinyl, I was very happy to see this record was well packaged to avoid it being warped. Plus this album's a banger.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mistake order turned out ok 7 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this album thinking it was a more shoe glaze album similar to alcest or les descreates. Not sure where I got that logic from but I ordered it anyway. There are not many songs from this album on YouTube when I looked only older albums. I ordered it and then by the time I gave old songs a listen and realised it had been dispatched.

Not to the album

Artwork there is not much just what you can see in the pictures. No art book which I miss when it's not in an album. You get the lyrics on the card sleeve and the usual info inside.

The music on this album starts of strong similar to band more like early mogwai with the post rock feel to the music. The musicianship of the album it sounds more technical and have a nice attention grabbing guitar leads. My biggest flaw with this album is the vocals. They seem very whining and not clean vocals not like I've come across before. I really think the vocal on this album is too rough and not pleasing on the ear.

There are a few track that I like a lot even with the vocals like getting sodas and heartbeat in the brain.

Overall a good album let down by the vocals in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Moving Album 27 July 2013
By Andrew Bettik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl
I have been listening to the likes of "The Wonder Years", "Brand New" and "Now, Now" recently. This album has done nothing but impress me with the sheer raw emotion. From the first track to the last, it blends a surreal picture of almost apologetic angst. A sort of nothing might get better, but we can always appreciate where we are sort of feel. One of my favorite albums I've come across this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars The World is More Beautiful With This Album 29 Sep 2013
By J. Cristobal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I like what the first commenter said about this album having a "nothing might get better, but we can always appreciate where we are sort of feel." I doubt I'll be able to describe the music better than that but what I can say is that the sound achieved by this band here sent me back to the good old days of Emo (circa mid to late 1990s), before it became whatever that term means to the world now. Think of it as post-rock if you prefer, but all terms aside, this album is great from start to finish.

If it helps, I'd compare the sound of The World Is A Beautiful Place... to the likes of The Appleseed Cast, Cap'n Jazz, and a number of old bands off the Deep Elm record label. I hope these guys stick around fora while and I hope that they inspire other musicians to re-discover their roots.

4.0 out of 5 stars Whenever, If Ever by The World is a Beautiful Place and I am No Longer Afraid To Die 8 Mar 2014
By Abbe Hinder - Published on Amazon.com
It’s not easy to describe every band that I listen to. Sure, some bands are far easier than others but still, the effort and indecisiveness are still there for them. However, with The World is a Beautiful Place, it’s just like that, I love some of their songs but then I don’t understand others, I can’t wait to see them live but I don’t think I’ll be able to get into their music as much as my friends do. It’s confusing but what isn’t confusing is how great this album is.

There’s always going to be something that I dislike about an album, always. Maybe not at first but always soon after and with Whenever, If Ever, that something are the vocals but mostly the back-up vocals. They sound extremely off-key and sloppily done compared to the lead vocalist and hearing them both together just shows that.

What I did like about this album is how some songs start and other songs finish on the same note as well as the fact that all the songs have a great build-up, especially in Getting Sodas. The emotion and tone that this album gives off as a whole is great and gives off that actual ‘gig life’ feeling that every teenager wants to experience at least once.

The World is a Beautiful Place handed me a slow album that I was expecting yet I appreciate it either way because it sounds great. The drumming and bass pieces and executed lovely with just the right amount of strength and build-up that makes each song better. I recommend this album to anyone who enjoys the post-rock genre and don’t mind a few slow songs that have tremendous build-ups. My favourite songs are-Gig Life, Getting Sodas, You Will Never Go to Space, and Ultimate Steve.
4.0 out of 5 stars Mo Emo 7 Mar 2014

Such a great emo revival band. How could you ever go wrong with those big, open guitar riffs and songs about high school love. Nothing sounds more like summertime and The World Is a Beautiful Place do it right.

I listen to this record and lay on the floor and look at the ceiling, and I've never been happier.
