Like this much better than Deerhunter, a band I just can't get into.

Eveningness is perfect.

Good to see this album can attract non Deerhunter fans. I really do believe this album stands apart as more than just a Deerhunter side project.

Finally gave this a careful listen. Definitely a fine album, full of atmosphere and professionalism. I do think, though, that it also illustrates just how much Cox brings to the table for Deerhunter, particularly in terms of edge and eccentricity. Eveningness is a great track.

I'll bring my Cox to the table, if you know what I'm saying.

Funny thing is, my reaction after the first listen was that I was happy Cox was no where near this album.

Considering that this is much better than Deerhunter, I agree.

I'd have to disagree quite thoroughly with you there. I'd say Halcyon Digest is considerably stronger than this album. But to each their own, of course.

I actually rate this album as high as Microcastle.

Oh, I know I'm in the minority here with my feelings on Deerhunter. No worries.

I find Atlas Sound pretty dull. It's definitely good that Cox is kept in check, although I find his vocals and lyrics extremely good. Microcastle is still the best thing the group and its members are responsible for, but I'd say it's a close second between Spooky Action and Halcyon Digest.

I understand that Deerhunter is not for everyone. It certainly took me a while to come around to them.

The separation between Halcyon Digest and Spooky Action for me is in the diversity of the songs; Action strikes me as somewhat formless, whereas Halcyon is brimming with personality. Plus I do not think that there is anything on Action as immediately gripping as Helicopter or Desire Lines (even though LP was responsible for the latter). I've just always admired Halcyon for its blend of cohesion and song diversity.

i understand where you're coming from. Personally though, i feel that the songs on Spooky Action are just......better than Halcyon Digest.
