On several tracks, bass and drums sound buzzy and distorted, as if I'm listening on a cheap, blown-out set of speakers. One track has a fake sounding music box intro that warbles in and out of tune - but it's plainly obvious the de-tuning is digital, as it cycles from sharp to flat in the same places with digital precision. Rather than adding atmosphere to the recording, these are intrusive, obvious and false attempts to simulate an old-timey recording.
I can listen to the album in the car, but if I put on earbuds or headphones, it's too intrusive, too twee. I have a dream that one day they'll put out a 'clean' version of this album without all the distortion and fakery. Without it, there's still plenty of atmosphere to attain Lord Hurons' dream of a mystical trip through the universe.
It's incredibly refreshing to buy a new album this year that delivers on fan expectations in spades (and avoids the now-common but short-lived choice to go topical/political)! This album is a natural point of progression further down the path from Strange Trails. There are planty of new sights and sounds but also enough familiar echoes of the sound and subject matter that put LH on the map.
They respect the audience enough to stick to what they do best: make wonderful music.
They didn't 'discover' and throw in a new sound of 80s pop synths. They didn't discover "marriage and children" and begin writing about "novel" pedestrian homelife topics and crises (that the rest of us have lived thru, 'yawn').
And most importantly, they protected the integrity and timelessness of this album, by NOT filling it with hair pulling and moaning, and complaints about current events. This album will be just as listenable for my grand children as it is today. And the music won't require an explanation for future generations. It stands on its own.
For us, they've released yet another wonderful soundtrack for our five-hour drives to our cabin in the North Woods.
It has the same kind of love songs that make you want to drive that speak to you.
In some ways it has more of a upbeat sound than Strange Trails, which is personally my favorite so far.
Lonesome Dreams and now Vide Noir are amazing in their own rights and certainly fit specific moods.
SO BUY IT !
The only negative, and I find it on all of their albums, is that it sounds like it was recorded in a tin can. The reverb in the vocals is a bit much. Almost gives the impression that they are using electronics to cover up bad singing or something. Wish things sounds more clear and not as “airy”.
Overall, definitely a good album.
