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!'"

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.

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.

I discovered Portugal. The Man day in college, some five years ago, in a smoky music sess with some friends. The Satanic Satanist (SS) was the first album I heard (though the fourth they've produced), and I fell for it hard. What wasn't there to like? With happy-go-lucky melodies (reminiscent of the Beatles), a groovy baseline, and that soulful electric guitar (think "Pink Floyd)," this album had me HOOKED. I listened over and over again, then advanced to Censored Colors--one of their earlier, deeper, more somber albums. I've been with them ever since. And they're a good band to be fond of: they're prolific music producers (roughly 1 album every year); each album sounds UNIQUE; and they kick ass in live performances. I saw them perform at Outside Lands in GoldenGate Park last year and John Gourley's voice is as hauntingly beautiful onstage as on the record.

Two things make this band extraordinary. First, all of their albums are completely and utterly unique. Yet they all bear the unmistakable imprint of PTM.... which brings me to my second point. These guys can SING! Not only are they talented instrumentalists, but nearly every song incorporates flawless harmonization between 2 or 3 of the members. It's rare to find a band that has so many talented voices. It adds a new dimension of richness to the music (think Mumford and Sons) that leaves you humming the refrains long after you've stopped listening.

As for this specific album, where do I start? I think the whole point of this album is a tongue-in-cheek mockery of religion. Far from sounding "satanic," the music is more of a groovy lovefest, eliciting warm feelings of happiness.
