One of the strongest albums I've heard in a long time and certainly one of the best new albums from 2011. Almost all the songs are excellent and very catchy, particularly after a couple listens through. They remind me of a cross between Simon and Garfunkel with My Morning Jacket. But if you like groups such as Grizzly Bear or other indie-folk-rock music like the Decemberists, you'll really like this one.
