it is a long way from the directionless mess that some are making it out to be. Give it a few plays and it will get under your skin, swim into your bloodstream and build tunnels in your bones

The all-female quartet seemingly has been around since forever (actually since 2007 or so), but they have released only one full-length album (2010's "The Fool") to date. After what seems to be an endless wait, now finally comes the band's second album. If you are not familiar with the band's sound, think (early) The Like-meets-(early) The Cure.

"Warpaint" (12 tracks; 51 min.) starts off with a delightful 2 min. "Intro", which is actually one of the best tracks on here, and which immediately showcases the band's evolved, fuller sound. This also comes across a bit later on "Love Is To Die" (1st single), about as accessible as the band has ever sounded, while maintaining its own unique style. The band slows things down considerably on "Teese", with great acoustic guitar upfront. THE track on this album is arguably "Disco//very", which does have a certain dance-driven beat to it but surely isn't 'disco' as such. The album starts to lag a bit towards the end, although I like the psychedelic-reminding "CC" quite a bit, but the album would've been even stronger/more focused had one or two of the weakest songs been let off (such as the closer "Son"). But in the end it's a minor quibble. The band's growth on this album as compared to "The Fool" is amazing, and one could honestly make the argument that "Warpaint" is the great leap forward for this band. Please note that the album was produced by none other than Flood and mixed by Flood and Nigel Godrich

I had the good fortune of seeing Warpaint in concert twice last Fall in a matter of 2 weeks, once at the Laneway Festival at the Meadowbrooks in Detroit, and then again at the MidPoint Music Festival here in Cincinnati. They played similar sets, and previewed a number of tracks from the then still unreleased album, including Intro, Keep It Healthy, Hi, and Love Is To Die (but unfortunately not Disco//very), and all of these tracks sounded much heavier in concert as compared to on the new album. If you have a chance to see these ladies live, do not miss them! Meanwhile, "Warpaint" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

It's slow, melodic, and ghostly. Some times there is too much space, some melody shifts are questionable. But I can't stop listening, it just works. Give it three good listens, it got better every time for me.

Perfect for after parties, love affairs and staring into space. These girls are unique and a welcome change to lots of modern bands who chase commercial sounds or go retro garbage digging to get your attention.

Warpaint begins with a mistake and an apology. It's a modest way to open such a beautiful, slow and hypnotic album. Like Faith No More's 1992 masterpiece, Angel Dust, only one or two songs contain a clearly defined chorus. This album isn't for everybody. But if you're not completely cynical and don't think music should only go certain places and do specific things (as Pitchfork's dim-witted review reveals about them), you might find yourself lost in its magic.

2nd album from all female Los Angeles band—elegantly celestial, atmospheric indie pop/rock
with a haunting air of dark & delicate electro-dub rhythm over seductive, dreamy voices. The
songs feel gentle and fragile, more likely to break than bend, as they wander (a bit aimlessly)
through realms both eerie and airy. Overall, the album has a sort of hypnotic, druggy-angel
feel, but lacks any real reason for me to want to hear it again, and seems destined for the sale
pile. Nice, but it just puts me to sleep. Sometimes recalls School Of Seven Bells, later Blonde
Redhead, Beach House, CocoRosie, Memoryhouse.

Warpaint make me feel like I'm a part of their jam session. I have yet to see them live but listening to this album makes me feel like I'm in a intimate setting with them. Warpaint, through each track, make me feel as though I'm hearing a song being created and then developed and then concluded and that this has happened right before me.

Alluring, without pretense.. Inspired, without fear.. Driven, but at a comfortable pace.

I can't feel as though any song Warpaint makes has a finish or a start. It has just been something that has happened along the way.

I am blown away by this band but in no way am I in a hurry to exhaust my ears of them either. I will instead appreciate their music with patience till I can get as great a vacuum I can afford to listen to them(probably my truck), perhaps late in the quiet evening.

I have bought Exquisite Corpse and The Fool and enjoy them almost equally. I also love that each album/ep has it's own flow and feel.

I read a review and heard some of their music on NPR. I came to amazon to preview more of the titles and was pleasantly surprised by the musicianship and songwriting. The creativity on display shows that WARPAINT has a lot of good music to come. I like this album and look forward to future offerings from the group.

First off I am going to say that this band is amazing live! They bring you into their music and their sound and I encourage anyone who is a fan of their music to go see them live if you get the chance.
I can honestly say that this album after the first few listens was good but not great-there was definitely three songs that I really enjoyed but the rest of the cd I just wasn't feeling it but then.........It got in my head and after having it play in my car for almost two full weeks I didn't want to take it out. I really really like it! I think that there first album is a little catchier but this album really gets into your head and stays there.

I have to agree with someone else on here who said stick with this and give it several listens. I thought the album was just okay after a few listens but then I thought it was very good and really enjoy it. I would probably rate it an 8 out of 10 while I give there first cd a 9 out of 10.
Warpaint fans and just fans of melodic, moody and original rock will find this an interesting listen. I am really curious as to where these girls will go next with their third album.
Worth a purchase and several listens!
