Great album, like Mercury Rev mixed with Postal Service. Great for the car or commute to let it wash over you and you'll be hooked. Individual tracks - Safe and sound is v catchy, and last song, All the distant ships, is really really good, reminds me of explosions in the sky, with lyrics... maybe. Anyway I saw the 1 star review so thought i had to comment and gave it 5 stars although its perhaps only a 4, but just as good as S/T which I would thoroughly recommend too.
*Edit* 3 months later and definitely 5 star. Track 3 blending into track 4 is the album highlight I just can't ever get bored of. If you like this try the band "The New Year". Similarly slow burn brilliance.
