I have been a fan of Mike Hadreas since his debut and he just gets better with every album. I love seeing his evolution as an artist; not just in his music but also his fashion and as a performer. I have been lucky to see him perform a number of times and he does not disappoint. This album is so good and has been on heavy rotation at work and home. I especially love "Die 4 You". This track is so soft and sensual and I wish I could sing in that key!
Perfume Genius is one of the few artists daring enough to jump into the 21st century with his whole body. This recording is binaural--basically the way humans hear, with both ears. It's a special way to record (pretty simple actually) and it literally gives a spine-tingling (especially if you are ASMR), over the moon sound! This 3D recording is as close to being right there in the recording studio. Best listened to with headphones. (binaural-3D is not the same as surround sound--this is straight up at the recording level. It's a very rich, moving album.
This album sounds like a butterfly coming out of its cocoon and saying "oh wow I'm beautiful...but hey I'm still really frickin' pissed off about some of that stuff that happened back when I was a caterpillar". Every time it swoops around you don't know if it's just marveling at its own wings or maybe coming in for a strafing run. It's just fragile and frightening and beautiful all at once and I'm in love with it.

An amazing artist. Great album from beginning to end. I love the art work including the cd its got like a historic feel from 1776 era to it as it looks like a painting. Very cool. I'm getting a 2nd copy love it so.
These are inventive, catchy and lyrically rich songs. Hareas's voice at times soars in falsetto, times whispers close to the mic. The band - consisting of guitars, drums and keys - have an individuality often absent in rock and pop lineups. Some really beautiful electronics are interwoven throughout the album and the punchy production can at times surprise if close listening. The sound is immersive so play loud or listen on headphones with your eyes closed. Definitely the best album I have heard in a long while. Brilliant...
I used this product to listen to and it filled my ears with a glorious mix of curious melodies, sensitive vocals and swirling emotions. A true original so if you enjoy music that becomes more and more enjoyable the more you listen to it, then Perfume Genius is the aromatic artist for you!
5.0 out of 5 starsFanatstic album, takes a few listens but really great when you do.

Superb album worth the investment in time. Initially sounds a bit all over the place with high voice, but on further listens is a superb multi-layered album, moving, sonically interesting and beautiful.
