Editorial Reviews

The group has returned to working with loops and samples once more, certainly the most they have since their 2006 debut, "Waiter: 'You Vultures!'"

This album is solid, and stands on its own very well.
Van Heezy
Portugal the Man is one of the best indie bands around and this, in my humble opinion, is their best album.
Mark Shoe
Highly recommend them to anyone who listens to alternative/indie music.

I haven't wanted to listen to an album as often as I have with this in a long time. It's unbelievably infectious, and has a kind of charm to it all the way through that makes me keep coming back to it, right from the sunny music (think happy and maybe a little faster Pink Floyd/Beatles), the irony in the name of the album, the artwork, the lyrical delivery, everything about this album just begs you to listen to it more and more.

If you've followed Portugal. The Man much at all, you know two things that are sure with them. They'll put out at least one album a year, and it will be different than anything they've done in the past, while still sounding entirely like themselves (if that makes sense). Those trends continue here.

The Satanic Satanist definitely isn't as ambitious as Censored Colors was. I liked this album more immediately than I did with Censored Colors, but I don't think it's quite as good of an album. But that is more of a compliment than anything. Everything about this album is more immediately gratifying, but there is (so far) enough to keep you coming back, hearing things you hadn't before. This album is solid, and stands on its own very well. Gourley's voice is again, one of the best out there right now. Something about him almost reminds me of John Lennon. Maybe it's just the way he comes off because their voices aren't that similar, but there's still just something there.

This is a great album that you need to pick up. While you're at it, grab their older stuff too. It's more than worth it, I can't recommend this band enough. My favorite tracks here have to be "People Say", "The Sun", "Guns and Dogs", and "Mornings".

Portugal. the Man has been cranking out albums like nobody's business, this being their fourth in four years. However, all have been tremendous, and have showcased their uncanny knack for progressing their sound and keeping us, the captive audience, on our toes. This release is simply amazing.

The concept is terrific, and you can sense the change in mood throughout. If you love catchy, original music, give this a spin. If you hate catchy, original music, still try it. These guys are sensational, and they deserve to get way more attention. Definitely album of the year thus far.

Format: Audio CD
This is quite likely my favorite album released this year. If you are just getting into Portugal. The Man, this is probably your best place to get started. While not necessarily their best release (I couldn't possibly choose), it is doubtless their most accessible.

The sound draws heavily from blues-based classic rock and would have fit in perfectly forty years ago. By the third listen (if not earlier) you'll be singing along. When you listen to this, LISTEN TO THE WHOLE THING, at least the first few times. Track ordering is superb and the flow works very well.

The whole album is about 35 minutes long, and very strong throughout. I really have nothing bad to say about it. I don't know if they still sell the vinyl, but this is the kind of album that is awesome to throw on the turntable.

I'm not sure how to fit this in anywhere else, but John Gourley (vox/guitar) and Zach Carothers (bass) are both from Alaska, and you can definitely hear it in the music. In a great way.

The tone of this album is more melodic than previous for The Man, but the songs have a groove and up lifting sense of nostalgia. Tracks like "The Sun" and "The Woods" deliver. Over all tracks flow into each other seamlessly. The cd case itself is a massive folding die-cut! a True hail back to the days of vinyl. It is a true work of are and a joy to look at while listening to the jams within.

This band was introduced to me through a friend. I remember saying "Oh Portugal The Man sounds familiar." What i didn't expect is to hear such well-written music. This CD is one of those rarities in that the whole CD is good. Not to bash amazon, but this CD on Itunes has acoustic versions to all the songs on the album. The acoustic version are just as good and seem to have their own take on the songs. Definitely check this band out and you will not regret it.

Portugal. The Man continue to astound and thrill me with each release. If you don't know them, get familiar. If you do, you'll be pleased with the new album. They simply keep putting out album after album of some of the best music i have heard in quite some time. Originality is a hard thing to accomplish these days and they do it with ease. One of the very best bands around today. I cannot recommend this enough.

This is seriously the sickest CD case I have ever seen. Very impressive but difficult to keep opening and closing frequently/fastly.

I am somewhat new to Portugal. The Man. Like and love pieces of their other albums, but his one is GOLD ALL THE WAY. Such a great mix of instruments and rhythm. Soul, funk, big band and more all rolled into one cohesive album of related yet unique songs.

I have listened to this straight through over and over while on plane, train, auto, at gym, hiking...it travels and works as a soundtrack for thoughts in all of these situations.
