4.0 out of 5 stars Precisely crafted, 5 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Veckatimest (MP3 Download)
Featuring outstanding production and varied instrumentation, this is a lush pop record. The record is meticulously crafted with each track being a very deliberate and complete package. Grizzly Bear don't know the meaning of the words 'after thought'.

This could be a problem for some, with such immense attention to detail in their craft there is very little room for spontaneity. Songs are structured to leave little room for sudden twists or surprises. This is not because it is a dull record but merely because the songs present here all have a very particular atmosphere and the band have put utmost care into ensuring thats not disrupted.

Some very strong pop-songs ensure that even after the first few spins you'll swear you've known some of these tracks all your life. In a good way. 'Two Weeks' & 'Cheerleader' are such immediately endearing songs they will hook many listeners straight away. The songs that lack immediacy still have an air of comforting familiarity. The depth of the collection as a whole ensures you'll still be discovering the intricacies of this album for months after you first hear it.

Highly recommended for fans of: Fleet Foxes, Department Of Eagles (featuring members of Grizzly Bear) and The Middle East
