This album didn't click with me immediately the same way that many of the songs on the debut did, but its grown on me a lot and I think that it is overall, a stronger and more mature effort.

Haven't heard this album yet. Is it catchier than their last LP? (which wasn't catchy at all in my opinion), or are they sticking with their mature indie-folk sound?

I'm going to give this a listen considering I like Fleet Foxes... hope I won't be disappointed.

I think they are a very good band who have done some great songs but not a consistently great classic album yet.

Both their EP and debut album were incredible! I was worried about this one but clearly I was wring because they managed to amaze me again. This is pure greatness and beauty To me, saying that this band is dull is like saying Justin Bieber is incredibly talented. So try again!

I'm just starting to listen to this album (I'm on the first song), but I can already tell that this will be a quality listen.
