This review is from: Heaven (Audio CD)
The Walkmen have carved a distinct and unique identity by now and whilst being oft compared to The National and Arcade Fire I believe that rather like the devil they probably have the best songs. Whilst the jangling and buzzing guitars and exultant choruses are in place as usual, the consistent highlight of this album is the by turns beautiful and powerful singing of vocalist Hamilton Leithauser, the best example of which is probably on Love is Luck. This album is one of those rare beasts that make an immediate impact yet also repays repeated listens. Potential album of the year material in fact.
