Editorial Reviews

In Conflict was written and produced by Pallett, recorded with the core rhythm section of Robbie Gordon and Matt Smith, and features contributions from Brian Eno and The Czech FILMharmonic Orchestra, amongst others. In Conflict is full of love songs more specifically, songs about liminal states and our loved ones locked in battle with them. Pallett was recently nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score, alongside Arcade Fire for their work on the soundtrack to Spike Jonze's Her.

I've listened to this album three times in a row after receiving it and I can't get over the intricate artistry and profound intelligence of the experience. In Conflict is really something exceptional and hypnotic.

Pallett's earlier albums are very much intellectual exercises that demand time and attention. They are not designed for casual or background listening. In Conflict requires the same effort, but musicianship is much more accessible and memorable. The addition of Brian Eno--which usually means complexity for complexity's sake--really adds to the overall experience.

If you're familiar with Pallett through his work with The National or Arcade Fire, be forewarned that this music is not close to either. But it is so refreshing, so, for lack of a better term, inspirational that few who give this a try will be disappointed.

Owen Pallett continues to shine brighter than any fire in an arcade, with the luminescence of Genesis like song/story construction and reflective genius of Brian Eno, "In Conflict" opens the aural spectrum of a complex listening experience with a layering of his voice echoing the heartfelt cries of Peter Gabriel and the tension of his violin work on I am not Afraid! "On A Path," one of the songs on "In Conflict," is a music noir journey into his soul with rich meaningful lyrics. Step up to the next shimmering musical aria," In Conflict," revel in its majesty and craftsmanship a lush romp through the mind of music.

This is a mastermind creation. I fell in love just based on samples I heard before getting this album. I have strong expectations that I will be frequently playing this album through the rest of my life.

Songs connecting to me the most so far : The Riverbed, The Passions, On A Path, Song for Five & Six, In Conflict, The Sky Behind the Flag, Chorale. I really love & respect this album very VERY MUCH !

Glad Brian Eno & Owen Pallett worked together for this. Matt Smith another great part of this write. I always felt Eno was a brilliant connection with David Bowie, especially with the "LOW" album. Eno's solo work is very dreamy and hypnotic, very solid history here, especially with his albums Here come the warm jets, Taking tiger mountain and Another green world. Eno was also a significant part of Roxy Music.

Owen Pallett has certainly caught my attention! He has an INCREDIBLE VOICE and writes terrific Heart Felt Lyrics, Very Nice. Anxious to keep up with his developing art!

Very Strong Recommendation to go on this adventure. GET THIS ALBUM

I'll start by saying this an extremely difficult album to grasp, at least compared to Heartland. Heartland is a much more accessible record, but In Conflict perhaps has a greater payoff once you fully understand it. Granted I will admit not every track does it for me, there's something hauntingly beautiful about tracks like "I Am Not Afraid" and "Song For Five and Six." So if you're the type of person that needs instant results, this record might not be best suited for you. But if you can practice some patience, In Conflict will definitely pay off after a couple times through.

It is a devastatingly beautiful grouping of songs that I can't stop listening to. Themed very differently from his earlier works, but every bit as enjoyable

It's everything I love about Owen Pallett. It's a little more "mainstream" for a lack of a better word than previous albums, though I don't mean that negatively. The songs are composed in a way that I think is more appealing to a wider audience but still have everything older fans of his work adore.

Some of the best new music I've heard in a long while; inspires me as a musician and writer, is completely memorable while also being highly unique, and blends synths with sublimely arranged string parts in ways that feel both natural and novel.
