Sadly, but this is rather disappointing...
on 9 May 2013
Whilst 'Halcyon Digest' was a work of utter brilliance and beauty that worked as a fantastic entity in itself on initial hearings the new album 'Monomania' is a bit of a sprawling mess to be frank. I have all the Deerhunter albums and most of the Atlas Sound stuff so am extremely familiar with the work of Mr Bradford Cox and when certainly 'Halcyon Digest' was one of my albums of that year this one is so far a big disappointment in comparison. Apparently Bradford Cox had a huge amount of songs for this new album and ditched lots, maybe it was the wrong ones? I hope to be proven possibly wrong in my thoughts towards this album in the future but at the moment I will not be rushing to listen to it again in any hurry. Sad but true.
