I just got around to listening to Halcyon Digest. The second half is way better than the first. That's about all I have for thoughts at this point.

Probably the most underwhelming album of the year for mine.

It's a grower, but it started at like a 7/10 for me and has moved up to an 8 or 8.5. Still not as good as Microcastle, but better than most albums I've heard this year.

That's harsh! I think that this album will place in my top three for the year. It continues to reveal more nuance on every listen. It also boasts at least three of the finest songs of the year: Earthquake, Desire Lines, and Helicopter. I love the balance of the ambiance and pop structures.

Yeah, I've definitely liked it more with each listen as well.

see i've heard a lot of albums this year, ones that will feature on a lot of your lists, but this is an example of an album that i could not remember a single thing about five minutes after listening to it. for me to listen to an album again, i have to either be totally captivated (like Cosmogramma) or i have to be able to recall a couple of the songs at least (like The Lady Killer).

Really? There are plenty of albums that I didn't like after the first listen and that I love now. This album was one of them. The only song that got me immediately was Earthquake. I even hated Helicopter at first but now it's one of my favourites.

I listen to every album at least twice, and those two occasions have to be on two different days. Give them a chance, I say.

Just listened to this again. It's dead even for me: I really enjoy half of it, and am incredibly bored by the other half. Sailing might be the most boring song I've heard this year.

Apparently they released some sort of live ep / album on iTunes. Have you stolen it yet, mikal?

I couldn't find a newer thread. There hasn't been any talk about Monomania yet?

It leaked!
