The Teen Dream that won't end up with you on To Catch a Predator AKA Beach House

Since so much discussion is going on in Random, figured it may be a good idea to give it its own thread. This seems to be a very divisive album, so feel free to weigh in.

For the unfamiliar, brush up on reviews that cover the entire range from love to indifference to hate:

What are your favorite songs from the album?????? You will tell me.

There are so many good tunes on the album that its hard to pick a favourite. I really like Silver Soul, Walk In the Park, Lover of Mine (The middle 8 is amazing)... The first 4 songs are pretty much perfect... 10 Mile Stereo is amazing

Ha, my list is pretty much the same. First 4, Lover of Mine, and Take Care.

Don't tell Imps, but I like Used to Be a decent amount as well.

It's probably one of my top two listens of the new year so far. But divisive is correct: my wife doesn't like it.

Has anyone heard the original single version of Used to Be from 2008? Is it much different?

I'm ashamed to say that I havent heard either of their previous albums. I should do something about that then?

Definitely. The debut and Devotion are both solid, although I do think Teen Dream is their best album.

I don't hate "Used to Be" or anything, it just seems like more of a trifle compared to some of the album's highlights. The middle starts to sag a bit after the fantastic opening four and picks back up for good with "Ten Mile Stereo," which is a thing of beauty.

April 22 can't get here soon enough. And the ticket was cheaper than the album. Neato.

Take out Lover Of Mine and I agree.

I'm glad Impy pushed me to listen to this. I'd written them off. Also, I sincerely hope they don't break out the cacophony of shitty drum machines in April when you see them, Impy.

If their recent set of rehearsal performances on Pitchfork.tv are any indication, I'm going to enjoy the show even with drum machines. Plus they did have an actual drummer there. Suppose time will tell.
