Editorial Reviews

Heartland exists. The 3rd Final Fantasy full-length and the first for Domino, it is the product of nine months work in four countries. Heartland is a fully orchestral record, designed to exist simultaneously as an album, a 45-minute piece of orchestral music and a set of songs for looped violin and voice.

It's hard to categorize this music.
G. Brozeit
During the second, when I began listening to the lyrics in earnest, I started to think it was pretty good.

There is such a crush of new music out there and most of it is predictable and formulaic.

I wasn't very familiar with Owen Pallet / Final Fantasy before buying this. It was more of an impulse buy based on glowing reviews I read leading up to its release.

It clearly is the record to beat this year - nearly two months after its release and I still stand firm on that assumption.

My favorites are the first two tracks here. He is very grounded in classical structures. His compositions are full of impeccable tonal resolutions and his voice somehow recalls Christopher Cross.

With that said - go make your own assumptions.

Truly a special album. I am a bit skeptical of some of the newer indie rock--not a huge fan of Grizzly Bear, et al. I was won over by Other Music's "free download" off this record. Since then, I bought the CD and I have listened to little else. Standout tracks are "Lewis Takes Action" and "Lewis Takes Off His Shirt." A couple of clips of him playing these two tracks live (available on You Tube) demonstrate that this guy is amazing. If I had to pick an analogue, it's a bit similar to (his sometimes collaborators) Arcade Fire. Simply incredible, beautiful, lush, accomplished music. Pretty amazing.

With a little more than a month gone by its hard to believe that there could already be albums worthy of the label "album of the year," but this is certainly one of those albums. For any of those of you familiar with Owen Pallett's earlier work as Final Fantasy you will certainly not be disappointed. It simply eclipses all of his prior work while simultaneously recalling it. The stunning baroque pop heard throughout this album hearkens back to classical 60s pop, as well as Pallett's work with groups such as The Arcade Fire, Beirut, and Grizzly Bear. In less than an hour Pallett's song cycle ebbs and flows with the serene beauty of a babbling brook. If you love the work of bands such as these you will definitely enjoy this album, but if none of them appeal to you in someway then this album is not your cup of tea.

I heard bits of this album on NPR of all places and was intrigued enough to pick it up. It came in the mail and I couldn't get it out of my CD player for a week and even now after many listenings it is still in heavy rotation. Someone asked me about it and I said it sounded a little bit like Eleanor Rigby crossed with Brian Wilson circa Pet Sounds, Mad Scientist in the Studio Todd Rundgren, Sufjan Stevens and Stravinsky's Firebird Suite. It is melodic but not straightforward, with angular soundscapes layered with gorgeous, shimmering multi-track vocals, quirky rhythms and surprising arrangements. My favorite album I've heard this year so far...

How it is possible that this album has received only two reviews? I readily concur with those two - it is unlikley there will be a better album this year. This is easily on a par with Sufjan Stevens "Illinois" and the two Arcade Fire albums - all acknowledged masterpieces. If you've made it far enough to read the three reviews of this album, buy it!

I have the Debut Project player. It cost a pretty penny and it has been fantastic with every other modern record.

However this is in slow motion, and the voice is lower like the records not spinning fast enough. I'm wondering if I'm
doing something wrong. I love this album though. But...it just doesn't work.
I've been testing old records and have found the same problem with all of the more bulky classical records. The 'flimsy' ones
sound great.
