The lyrics, rhythms, and melodies are all beautiful.
Annelie
Rarely do I come across an album that I can listen to entirely over and over again and love it more each time.

The songs themselves are great, but what really sets it apart is the overal SOUND of the album.

I buy a lot of music, and this is the first review I've ever written, so forgive me if my format is unusual. I had to write a review because I love this album! Seriously, I'd like to court this album for about a year before asking for her father's blessing. He would give it, gladly. I would ask for her hand over a fancy dinner, she would be appropriately surprised and gladly agree. It would be a quiet, beautiful ceremony, just family. Our honeymoon would be at Disneyland. We would have 2 children, a boy and a girl. He would become an astronaut, she the president. They would bear us many beautiful grandchildren. We would be faithful to each other our whole lives (old fashioned, I know). We would die of old age, within 10 days of each other. The funeral would be lovely and our ashes scattered over the Pacific. Lovely, beautiful, spectacular, just like this album. Buy it!

I buy a lot of music but have never written a review, when I saw that this only had one review I was was shocked. Since buying Threads, I have listened to it over 50 times and it gets better with each listen. For me, that's the true test of good music. It flows very well as a full album and I found that is the best way to listen to it. But for you kids out there that need a standout hit, check out Wolf, Dead Oaks, Prehistoric, and Thread. However, my favorite songs on the album are But I Do and School Friends. This album is so good from start to finish that it is by far my favorite album of 2012 (at this point it's not even close). Do yourself a huge favor, buy this album.

If Paramore began listening to Mew (e.g. "And the Glass Handed Kites"), and decided to take a big step toward making real ART, it might sound something like this. The songs themselves are great, but what really sets it apart is the overal SOUND of the album. Rather than sticking to a pile of guitars and such, the mix is filled with enough interesting sounds (not the least of which is the singer's phenomenal voice) to keep you guessing, and to make you forget that, at heart, these are pretty much pop songs. The mix shows not only a command of subtlety, but of RESTRAINT, as most often the tried-and-true wall of generic guitar tones is eschewed in favor of good old, forgotten SPACE. One guitar at a time is not uncommon (as is no guitar at all), and most are executed with a great degree of tonal know-how (one exception is "Oh. Hi.", which serves as the musical equivalent of the drawing of a lamp that is simultaneously a drawing of two faces... at 0:14 the sound of the hand sliding across strings is borderline hysterical). A guitarist that knows the value of midrange and knows that more gain does not usually equal harder-hitting! What a concept! Excellent performances all around, and a great group of songs to boot. What's not to love?

Before this album, I liked Now, Now. I didn't follow them to any large extent, but I'd listened to most of their music and I enjoyed it. I did not immediately pick up this album when it was released. A friend talked me into it. Now I owe that friend big time. Immediately this album shot to my favorite album of all time position, a position previously unwaveringly held by a record I bought years and years beforehand and had loved throughout my childhood. The connection I felt to these songs was extreme. There was passion behind the lyrics, and I loved the way they were sung and accompanied by such soothing, smooth, catchy rhythms. Cacie Dalager has the voice of an angel.

What I love most about this record is the connection between the songs. The album starts with The Pull, a short intro piece that is later reheard, extended and more complete, in the song Thread. The piece is tied in again at the very end of the record in the song Magnet's ending lyrics "Can you feel the pull, can you?" As the song fades away and the album ends, it takes you immediately back to that first piece and you want to listen to the album all over again.

This album is so complete, and, by my standards, much more professional sounding than any of Now, Now or Now, Now Every Children's previous records. This album makes me excited for all of their future products, and I don't think it'll leave my favorite album spot for a long, long time.

Literally every song speaks to me on every level of my being. It's amazing beyond words. This is literally one of the most intense indie albums to me.

I give this a strong four stars. I just bought this album today and have already listened to it at least three times. "Wolf" and "Separate Rooms" stand out to me, but I enjoy listening to the entire album as a whole. Recommended if you enjoy dreampop/shoegazy stuff. This album appeals to me in a way similar to albums like Bloom by Beach House or Civilian by Wye Oak.

*UPDATE* - After a few more days of nonstop listening, I am declaring this a five-star album.

This is one of the best albums I have ever heard. I accidentally discovered them on Pandora one day. Changed my life. I greatly love and admire the simplicity of Cacie's voice, Jess' guitar work, and Brad's amazing drumming. I wish they'd get a little more recognition. One of the best indie rock bands I've ever come across. Their sound is too unique, I can't find any music similar to them. I can't wait to hear their new materials. Everyone should give them a listen. You won't be disappointed. The lyrics are very well written.
