I've had this album only two days but it is very, very good . You can hear many subtle influences from Spagetti western , Niellson, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Velvet Underground, Mexican, Crooning and David Lynch type scores but this is pure Walkmen sound. The lyrics are intelligent and placed beautifully. The instruments are used sparingly and creatively - these guys can really play and don't need to show off - Hamilton's vocals have never been better....there are some real stand out tracks all ready for me that have given me goose bumps.... but some times the slow burners can surprise you.....Buy it ...get in your car, drive and become part of your own movie with Walkmen score. Amazing, brilliant, multi-layered genius .
