Absolutely splendid record, though I think we are starting to see the repercussions of Merriweather Post Pavillion.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
They were making music like this before Merriweather Post Pavilion. Also, might I add that MPP was AC's 8th album so this type of music is not new. Panda Bear, Volcano Choir, Grizzly Bear, any number of Canadian bands including Broken Social Scene, Wolf Parade, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, etc. are making similar music. MPP did not influence Yeasayer. Check out All Hour Cymbals.
