I really like The Far Field when it was released, but the only songs that have really stuck with me since are "Aladdin," "Ran," "Cave" and "Time On Her Side." The rest doesn't hold my interest as much any more. I think it's just gotten lost among so many excellent albums this year.

What about Shadows? I think that's arguably the second best song on the album.

Definitely should move this one up in the queue the next time I add a bunch of music on Amazon to my tablet for commutes.

I do miss the days of being caught up with basically everything that Pitchfork raves about, reissue or new record, but I just can't really find an activity at home that I really want to do alongside listening to music, so I just do a bunch of other stuff that doesn't really fit it...kind of realizing now how a lot of adults just move on from listening to new music, especially when they have far more personal responsibilities than myself.

Future Islands albums generally have a decent amount of filler, and you can tell from their setlists that they have a pretty good feel for what songs work. Having seen them live, the end of the main set run of Light House > Seasons > Long Flight > Tin Man > Spirit is an absolute monster. Maybe the most consistent build up of energy at any show I've been to.

I'll be perfectly content if they continue to release albums with half of the tracklist being strong and continuing to tour with this fervor. Hopefully Sam's knee holds up.
