Editorial Reviews

2008 solo album from Deerhunter frontman/provocateur Bradford Cox. Here on Let The Blind..., Cox moved out of dank nightclubs filled with eternal existential drone Punk, and relaxed at home in his Grant Park, Atlanta bedroom. This is, essentially, a bedroom album, mixing the Garage Rock and Ambient Electronic influences previously explored with Deerhunter in a new context, with newly explored recording techniques, mainly lap-top based. The result is 14 songs of melancholy and mania. This is a true solo album, entirely created and produced by a single person. Kranky.

Format:Audio CD
Richly textured, intensely personal fusion of dream and noise pop from Atlas Sound, a side project of Bradford Cox, otherwise a member of Deerhunter. The intensely personal part you may or may not get at first, if ever without an explanation (available online, fortunately), since some of the lyrics are so personal as to be abstract, but then those lyrics are often lost in the mix, obscured by instrumentation, static or droning sounds, anyway. Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel can be seen as an album akin to David Bowie's Low, where the feeling one gets from the music presented is as important than anything said (or sung) directly. That said, the music here is by turns beautiful and unsettling, and for a record that's so highly experimental for the most part, it's also highly listenable. Worth checking out for fans of adventrous pop. Standout cuts: "Recent Bedroom," "River Card," "Cold As Ice" and "Ativan."

5.0 out of 5 stars 20 track version a must. April 11, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Truly great album. I highly recommend to anyone that they pick up the 20 track cd import or double-vinyl version. The 6 extra tracks are totally essential to the whole of the album. Without em' is like watching a western in full-screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still listening August 17, 2013

I really liked Bradford Cox with Deerhunter on Halcyon Digest, and heard one of his solo songs from this album on Pandora. It has some nice sounds though a bit more venturing into different combinations - less structured, a little less melodic, but interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shimmering bedroom music June 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Bradford Cox is really adept at channeling the lonely child within- perhaps he's not even channeling at all. After reading many stories of Cox's gruelling surgeries and subsequent isolations in hospital from a young age, his inside-looking-out ruminations are crystal clear. In "Quarantined" he laments "....I am waiting to be changed..." a profound statement that illuminates this fine record.
