I finally listened to this record. It's almost as good as this thread says it is. I think with a few more listens, I'll agree with the hype. I'm super excited to see them now. (Thanks to LeMel for giving me the go-ahead to buy the ticket.)

This gets better with every listen. Easily album of the year. There's so much going on that something new stands out ever time.

The riff on Mind Mischief is killer.

This album hit me immediately and is growing on me. I don't think this has happened with an album since the Fleet Foxes debut.

I seem to recall you not liking Fleet Foxes at first.

Anyway, Apocalypse Dreams through Music To Walk Home By is my favorite stretch here. I love the outro of the latter.

That was as a band because my viewpoint was... tainted. The lead singer in my band hated them. Then my first listen of the Sun Giant EP didn't inspire me to delve deeper at that point whatsoever (it was not the actual Sun Giant EP, but the alternate version with the alternate version of Mykonos and with Isles). I didn't listen to intently. Then I heard Blue Ridge Mountains and was blown away, and subsequently listened to the debut album and loved it right away. After that, the Sun Giant EP grew on me.

when we do our year end rankings, I'm tempted to go 1a and 1b with this and Lotus Plaza. Right now I'd rank this ahead of Lotus Plaza but it's hard to judge considering one album came out a half a year before the other.

This is definitely my number one. Lotus Plaza will be in my top 10 though. Both it and it's counterpart (to me) by Real Estate.

Is it really fair to say an album is easily the best of the year after having it only a few days? I understand everyone listens to music differently, but that seems like a bit of a snap judgment to me.

I think I prefer the first album, but I'm enjoying this one quite a bit still. Finally got me to actually purchase the first album too, so that's good.

Well, some of us have been listening to it regularly for about a month now.

Agreed. My wife and I were engaged after 3 months of dating. She was my favorite woman of the year.

And hopefully every year since then?

I haven't listened to this album in 10 days now. What a disgrace.
