4.0 out of 5 stars Stripped Down..., August 27, 2008
This review is from: You & Me (Audio CD)
I loved the grandiose, late-night epic production of the walkmen of much of their earlier work. They kept it simple at times, but at many points they erupted into all out noise-rock.
This is the Walkmen at their most bare, melancholy, and oddly laid-back sounding. It also sounds amazing! They will never match the intensity and sheer audacity of their debut work, however this may be a close second. A Hundred Miles Off was fascinating work, i absolutely loved the latin influences and the ispiration of Bob Dylan felt on that album. But for dark, late-night barroom jams for the brokenhearted, this album has them in spades. If in a bad mood, this depressing album will strangely make you feel better, as if pleasantly aware of your depressive state. This album is very hard to categorize, and very surprising. It really will make you think your life over, and reevaluate your feelings. It is an epic masterpiece, and evidence that there is no end in sight for the Walkmen.
