The build up to this album was interesting. A few months ago, the first single “Hunger of the Pine” was released, met with initial skepticism over the usage of a Miley Cyrus sample. Then, a few weeks later, alt-J released the track “Left Hand Free”, an oddly pop oriented Black Key’s sound-a-like song. I admit, this song really had me worrying about this album. Was my beloved alt-J descending into the ranks of pop music? The last single, “Every Other Freckle” assuaged my fears, but left me completely baffled as to what this album was even going to sound like.

My fears were completely unfounded, because This Is All Yours is an awesome album. Alt-J created a worthy successor to their début album and has officially solidified their place as one of the premier indie bands of the 2010’s.

Good news: “Left Hand Free” is definitely the black sheep of the album. Most of the songs sound more like “Every Other Freckle.”This Is All Yours sees alt-J expanding their sound and their influence away from the fractured independent rock of their début record. The band feels more full than they did on their last album, (which is weird considering that they lost a member and are now down to three members) but seems to be embracing a more experimental sound, with odd instrumentation, fractured electronic sampling and fascinating song construction. This Is All Yours proves that the band understands what their strengths are, and delivers songs that contain unexpected surprises and quick 180 degree turns.

While most bands tend to attempt to appeal to a wider audience on their sophomore record, This Is All Yours feels less accessible (but more rewarding) than the début album An Awesome Wave.

This Is All Yours isn't a bad album, just disappointing. I fell in love with Alt-J a couple years ago when I saw them at Coachella. Got their first album, An Awesome Wave, and was blown away. This music was fresh, catchy, and just fun to listen to. Easily a 5-star recording. Then on the lead-up to the release of This Is All Yours, they released 3 tracks (Every Other Freckly, Left Hand Free and Hunger Of The Pine). These songs were and still are amazing and hyped me up for the album even more.

The problem is, save for a couple songs, the rest of the album does not live up to these 3 prerelease tracks. The album is awfully pretentious and lacking in too many areas. Over half the tracks have long periods where the band members are simply chanting behind a keyboard line (a couple of tracks are ENTIRELY this). Most of the tracks sound like they had an idea for something good, but those ideas never fully develop (even the fantastic Hunger Of The Pine starts to meander around towards the end, as if they couldn't figure out where they wanted to take the song) and we are stuck with half the album sounding like they wanted to make a Tibetan chant concept record.

Again, this isn't a bad album, but it is incredibly underwhelming considering this is the follow-up to one of the best albums I have ever listened to. Between this and the first record, the band lost a member....and it shows. The band wasn't ready to fill in the tunes for their missing bandmate and that is why we have such long periods of what is seemingly elevator-like music. Where An Awesome Wave had almost every song teeming with life, most of the songs here feel like they are on life support.

The album is worth a listen for Alt J fans, but I really wouldn't recommend it for others.

Upon listening to the first leased Left Hand Free and Hunger of the Pine, I decided that Alt-J made a weaker album this time than their debut.

But after listening to the rest of the album and studying the lyrics and going to their live concert, I realized how consistent and well-made this album is. It's so consistent that I feel they delivered more than what a music album can offer. It's more like a novel or movie in a sense that you can get the sense of security from this album like that of reading a book and watching a long movie in a theatre, which is impossible to find in listening to radio stations and many other albums that don't make this much sense. You have no idea how many stories and how many brilliant references their songs contain until you study them more rigorously than any of your English books.

It pains me to write this. I loved their first album and listened to it all the time. I was so excited when I saw this one was about to be released. I pre-purchased it and listened to the first three songs released and thought, "OK, this might be good". Little did I know that those were the better songs from the album. Left Hand Free does sound a bit like they are trying to sound like other bands, and that saddens me, as it is their uniqueness that makes them special. I was very disappointed when I got the rest and listened to it in it's entirety. It is way too slow and lacks the depth of An Awesome Wave. I find myself skipping most of the songs on this one. My faves on the album are Hunger of the Pine, Every Other Freckle and Lovely Day. I could honestly do without the rest. I hope they can get out of the slump for the next one. I was very hopeful about their future as one of my favorite bands.
