More rocking and stronger than last album 'Days' Posted by: from: Cape Cod, MA on Real Estate's third album is a winner. Much improved from their last album 'Days' (2011). 'Atlas' really flows well, with more melody and guitars larger in the mix. Though there is some sameness to the tracks, I enjoyed the laid back, hazy feel - perfect music for summer. To be honest after being somewhat disappointed by 'Days' I wasn't certain I would purchase 'Atlas' - but I'm glad I did - it is a more cohesive and powerful work - standout tracks include 'Talking Backwards', 'Crime' and 'Navigator'; that said the album should really be taken as a whole - the focus isn't really on particular songs, but on creating a warm, comfortable, nostalgic feel. While I wouldn't recommend this for everyone, I would to those who tend to enjoy gentler indie (rock) on the Pavement/ Stephen Malkmus spectrum. I held back one star because I think Real Estate is capable of even more, and though the lyrics and feel are great - there is a bit of repetition... If you enjoy taking albums as a whole, it's quite effective - although if you're looking for a track that grabs you immediately or anthem, or standout song, really not that much stands out from the mix. If you're interested in lyrical depth and a relaxing summer chill mix - 'Atlas' is perfect. While what is there is stellar, I'm still left wanting just 'that little bit more' on some listens. I can't put my finger on it - this is a very strong album - and indie rock is a genre I enjoy... all that might come with repeated listens or if your more into to this genre, but I wouldn't stay it's a true 'can't miss' stand-out. That being said it's worth the investment of time and money - I don't think you'll regret buying it as long as you go in accepting it's on the quieter/more reflective end of the spectrum.
