Some of the most challenging music of Low’s career, but also some of the most daring, intriguing, and rewarding.
One of the best albums of 2007 so far, as well as one of the best albums of Low’s career.
One wonders when Low will get trapped in their musical stylings.
The result is something pure and natural, as wholesome as can be, but also full of tension and anxiety.
Some tracks may leave the new listener bewildered, but I challenge anyone to not find the beauty ultimately contained in these recordings.
I would even hazard to say that Low’s music isn’t really experienced until you see them live.
Low plays each song in a very deliberate manner, as if each song survives from one chord or brushstroke to the next.
Low sticks to their tried and true formula of playing the most sedate pop music one can imagine.
I was completely spellbound by Low’s stripped down, sparser-than-sparse sound.
Perfect music for when you just want to be alone, the lights turned down, while the world rushes around you.
