One of my favorite records of all time. Incredible but arguably their third best album. LilZe85 Just listen to your Echo and the Bunnymen records ! One of the best album of the 2010's An exceptional piece of music, outstanding. Win Butler seems like such a tool Incredible album. Still their best Yeah but can you really go back and listen to this album often? Not one you put on repeat. Too Canadian hipster nerdy for my taste.

Great album 👍 One of the best albums of all time! Tells such a great story. A much needed voice and sound at the time that still hits today. 12/10
