It's a great shame that this came out around the same time as The War On Drugs 'Lost In The Dream' because, buying them together and with 'Atlas' being a more subtle beast, it didn't get a look in for a long while on my CD player.
While it doesn't have some of the amazing hooks present on the self-titled debut and even better 'Days', it has a beautiful, dreamlike flow that just takes you away on a bright summer's day. It's the very definition of laid back but not in a stoned, aimless way. As is their modus operandi, the band find a groove/melody and lock onto it in a mesmeric fashion - you just need to give yourself to the music, the universal lyrics and drift...
Highlights for me are 'Talking Backwards' and closer 'Navigator' but it's probably best to enjoy as a delicately shifting suite of chiming Anglophilic indie-jangle beamed in from the late 80s/early 90s.
Another winning summer soundtrack from the ironically tight ensemble who deal with looseness.

The album title derives from the German painter Gerhard Richter, who published a book of photos of the same name, with a similarly designed cover layout, so the album is obviously aiming high, with its cover art perhaps indicative of the approach they are taking. The album itself is reminiscent of Neu, sometimes, and of Michael Rother, particularly on the instrumental track, reinterpreted into a kind of fey Americana.

A summery feel good album. Melody clear sounds not cheesy. Takes me back to 1995. A must buy for any music lover.
