Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues

Release Date: 05/03/11
Genre: Folk

Review: So strange.  I thought the new album was more of the same so it didn't grabbed me at first, but maybe because i'm less familiar with it, it feels more mysterous to digest compared to their self-titled.  I still prefer that album to this, but this is a fine album within itself.  Although, it's sometimes gets on my nerve of the warm fuzzy attitude that Fleet Foxes seem to carry.  Because of that, depending where i am in the album, i can get lost or i can get buried.

Favorite Songs: Battery Kinzie, Helplessness Blues, Lorelai
Rating: 8.3/10

Yep, I agree - there's definitely more on this album to digest. Having spent a bit more time with it I find it's really a grower. Maybe a bit soy-latte starbucks at times, but I can look past it :) - My buddy Charles saw them in DC last month - check out his review .
