How to make a third album seem easy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Modern Vampires of the City (Audio CD)
Vampire Weekend are simply unlike any other band at the moment: they're instantly recognisable, effortlessly cool and they make wonderfully inventive music. Thank goodness this album lives up to expectations.
I instantly fell in love with their first self-titled album, but follow-up Contra took a few listens to endear itself and Modern Vampires is the same. I wasn't at all sure about the technical jiggery-pokery of the vocals on lead single Diane Young but I absolutely love the song now and I think the rest of the album will follow the same pattern. I already like it more and more with each listen.
A big sigh of relief then!
