Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Carey Mercer's raving, erudite lyricism weaves unusual intensity into the band's tenacious, powerful sonic assault. ''Tears of the Valedictorian'' is a rare album that is enjoyable on its first listen, but continues to get better and better over time as well.

Review

One listen to Tears of the Valedictorian confirms the group's uncanny talent for creating manic, beautiful and upsetting songs that seem to exist wholly for themselves. --AllMusic.com

Tears of the Valedictorian is an incredibly dense record and may take several passes before you can even begin to peel away its layers. That sense of rigor, though, is what makes it so arresting. --Prefix Magazine

"Tears of the Valedictorian" is Frog Eyes' best effort to date. Years of touring and recording have caused the band to become tighter as a whole, and the addition of Spencer Krug of Wolf Parade on keyboards fills out the sound expansively. Also, additional years of playing have benefited the drummer immensely, who only began playing shortly before Frog Eyes was conceived. Tracks such as "Bushels," "Reform Your Countryside" and "Evil Energy, the Ill Twin Of . . ." are undoubtedly among the greatest Frog Eyes' tracks to date.

I am a big fan of the frog eyes. This album is good. More refined, more mature. More emphasis on the playing, less on the voice. He doesn't quite sound like the raging madman he was on folded palms. Honestly I wish he did, but the playing is so good, it makes up for it. Probably more accessible than before to newcomers. Still awesome.

This is one of those albums that you just want to listen to all the way through. There are no individual songs that I would listen to alone, but as a whole this record is fantastic.
