Diane Young is pretty annoying, definitely one of the worst on the album (Worship You is probably the worst). It's one of the safer, less unusual tracks.

This album is good but not spectacular in any way. I don't enjoy the first two tracks which makes that I never want to start listening to it. Hannah Hunt and Step are top notch however.

Although the Pitchfork score is too high, I love this album. It's my favorite so far. And it's great to see a contemporary band making it past their sophomore record, let alone their debut.

Loved Step, and Hannah Hunt is the most beautiful track on the album.

But Unbelievers just connected with me in a way no song has done for the past 7 or 8 years. Loved the chorus, living up to expectations, growing up, responsibilities and the slim chance of taking a different path. The instrumental bridge that sounds kinda Irish (specially live) tears me up.

VW put out a great record for all the haters out there.

Anthony Fantano likes this album.

 
I think I might start citing Fantano as an authority in the same way Laz uses Christgau.

And I completely agree with his review. He even notes that the album drops off a cliff in the second half, which it does. The score sounds right on as well. 7 1/2 sounds fair to me.

This was the first "new release" album I've ever bought from Amazon that had the "AutoRip" functionality. Hopefully that's a new trend.

9.3 is an absolute joke. Found my interest waning heavily towards the end but pretty solid album. Hannah Hunt is fantastic, Diane Young and Unbelievers good too.

Stereogum ranked it as the #1 album of 2013 so far, which is exactly right. It's a landmark album, and their best yet. With a whopping 8 songs at A+ level, too: Step, Unbelievers, Ya Hey, Worship You, Hannah Hunt, Don't Lie, Everlasting Arms, and Diane Young. It gets better with each listen. Also cool: Ezra and Rostam met at a party in college and their first conversation ever was about which was U2's best album... Ezra went Joshua Tree, Rostam Achtung Baby.
