Just finished this album. I enjoyed it substantially, but I am not quite sure how much replay value it will have. It is one of those times in which I loved a bunch of the songs while they were playing, but could not recall them at all once the album had finished.

This album has like 5-6 of my favorite songs of the year and then a bunch of stuff that's pretty average. I have a hard time ranking it.

I do know that these guys are extremely capable of making something consistently fantastic. It's just a matter of when.

I feel that way about this one, Grimes, and Purity Ring. I love about half of the tracks from all of them, and am somewhat bored by the rest.

Still like them all quite a bit though.

I have never soured on an album as much as I did Grimes. But boy do I hate it now, when it was #1 on my list for like 3 months.

Purity Ring is pretty great throughout, but not amazing.

Meanwhile, there are 4 songs on this album that are the greatest of things released this year. Love love love.

FTR: I have NO IDEA why you keep comparing these three albums. To my ears they sound not a thing alike.

I don't know why either. I suppose Grimes and Chairlift came out around the same time, and Purity Ring seems like they're in the same vein of music. I don't mean it as a bad thing though, they'll all probably be in my top 20.

I didn't mean my post as a bad thing either, just curious. I have to use Google Chrome at school and I can't hot-key italics, so I end up capitalizing out of laziness, and it makes my posting look far more aggressive.

I mentally group together Grimes, Purity Ring, iamamiwhoami, and Chairlift. They just seem to belong to a similar sort of sound and aesthetic, though Chairlift perhaps the least of the four.

For my money, I think Something is the weakest of the bunch, but I still really like it and it'll certainly place well on my year-end list. I think kin will place the highest of the four, though Visions has really grown on me. I was initially more interested in just the first few tracks and "Be a Body", but now it's turned into a more full-album sort of experience ... and her live show was really excellent. Then again, so was Chairlift's. Purity Ring won't be here until March and I'm not holding out hopes iamamiwhoami will be rushing down here.

Purity Ring is my favorite of those three and will likely place in my top ten of the year. Perhaps I'm just not up on my witch-house or electro-gaze or whatever the hell genre they get labeled as, but Shrines is a unique-sounding album for me.

Visions has three great songs and a lot of pretty OK dance music with ear-piercing vocals. I don't get it. Purity Ring is cool but they have lots of room to improve.

I'll agree with Ax that iamamiwhoami is the most talented act of the batch. Kin is great.

I have had Met Before stuck in my head all day. What a terrific song. The interactive video is a blast too.
