Editorial Reviews

The War On Drugs, the Philadelphia-based project of Adam Granduciel, presents their third full-length album, the beautifully sweeping Lost In The Dream, via Secretly Canadian. Written and recorded over two-plus years in Philadelphia, North Carolina, New York and New Jersey, following almost two years of nonstop touring in support of 2011's Slave Ambient, Lost In The Dream is the outstanding presentation of Granduciel's progression and growth as a songwriter, performer, and producer. It is an immense listen to be absorbed and discovered now and for decades to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars The War on Drugs - Big Gold Dream March 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD
There is always a nervousness when a band returns to the fray after releasing a superb album. The last War on Drugs album, 2011's "Slave ambient" was in this reviewers humble opinion the best thing to come out of rock music that year. To use a sprinting analogy, it was a sort of musical Usain Bolt, always edging some very fine competition. With Adam Granduciel in the driving seat the band has a musician totally in command of his muse. It sees him accurately mix echoes of Springsteen with Can, of Petty with Neu and yet still produce a sound all of his own. The fact that Granduciel is also in a healthy competition with his Kurt Vile, his Philadelphia comrade and former WOD member, also seems to be pushing both musicians to scale new quality benchmarks. It is thus most pleasing to report that "Lost in a Dream" is every bit a match for its predecessor and mighty album. The extra dimension is that it is also a classic rock album something that certain commentators seem over ready to declare redundant.

The whole thing kicks off with a nine minute song "Under Pressure". Immediately all the WOD ingredients come together with a big build up, the melodically following guitar lines, a synthesized pause in the songs middle only for the song to return with extra power and fade out over waves of sound. An extra dimension on this new album is that Granduciel's vocals are now firmly up front in the mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Happy March 26, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am so happy to know that good rock music - even good any kind of music - is still being made. I was young, but still around and old enough to buy The Doors 1st LP when it came out, as well as Led Zeppelin's 1st LP, and Jimi Hendrix Experience "Are You Experienced" - you get the drift. I sometimes buy new music (Blow Up Hollywood, The Dreaming, and a hand full of others), but always revisit the classic rock. When I heard WOD, I was blown away. I came across this CD by a mistaken search, and am I glad. Bought 3 of their CD's at once. This group is incredibly talented - sounds like there's staying power.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost in the Dream March 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A cross between Gaslight Anthem, Deerhunter and the Verve... Damn, that made no sense (or did it?). This album is a bit more fast paced than the last one and has more build-ups. If he would get rid of all the effects that make this album slightly psych-folk the tunes would be catchy enough to garner a much bigger audience, but thankfully he is keeping everything that makes this music special, at least this time around.

Great production, careful arrangements, and the hardwork is all very evident in the 3rd War on Drugs album. Beautiful and meaningful music for the win.

Format:Audio CD
Few albums have captured the Psychedelic, melancholic, folky americana vibe as precisely as this one has. Balancing introspective psychedelia "Disappearing" with the anthemic glory or "Red Eyes", this sound is largely based in the 80's like some bastard child of Don Henley, Bob Dylan, The Chameleons and even Bruce Springsteen. There is a sadness that pervades even thre most carefree numbers like" An Ocean Between the Waves" and the beautiful "Eyes to the Wind" and there's a world weary wisdom that informs the soul of this record, "Love is the key to the things that we see, and don't mind chasing." "Lost In the Dream" and "In Reverse" close out the album with a somber uncertainty but that's almost what makes this album so beautiful and vulnerable. An incredible listen fom start to finsih. A grand parade indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars The long and short of it: Buy this album March 18, 2014
By Devan
Format:Audio CD
I'm going to make this review short and to the point because the music is sprawling and powerful enough to speak for itself. Imagine Bob Dylan's Blood on the Tracks mixed with Pet Grief by The Radio Dept. It's a hazy, introspective, and gloomy experience, but it's beautifully put together. The shimmering arrangements and every nuance in between comes through exceptionally well with headphones on. If you liked (or loved) Slave Ambient, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely March 21, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Get it. It's a really, really nice listen. Not rockin', if that's what you're looking for, but not a snooze fest either. If you know of this artist or the ilk, you'll like this - a lot. Heard it at my local record store, brought it home and listened twice through. Get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living I. The dream March 31, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Like listening to Springsteen covering Dire Straits through a gossamer haze in the back of a small club.
More muscular than Slave Ambient and tighter too (though there are several songs that clock in over 6.5 mins) but still has the same tripping on a sunny day vibe. Probably not for everyone, it's not very aggressive or instantly pop accessible, but I'm sure it will grow very quickly on people that want something just different enough from their music.
RIYL: Dylan, the Verve, dreamier Dire Straits, getting stoned and listening to that Indy station at the bottom of the dial.
