Another great album
Posted by: GloveRoy from: on
Grizzly Bear had a lot to live up to after the success of Veckatimest. Like the previous album, Shields takes a few listens to fully appreciate the subtleties and nuances, but it really proves to be a gem. Love it!

Good album by a great indi band

This is Grizzly Bears 4th album. Although the band seems like its moving into a new alternative direction, I feel like they are leaving their folky style that made them so great. With that said, I cant help but love a lot of the songs on the album. "Sleeping Ute" was released months ago, but I had it on repeat for DAYS on my iPhone. Their second single, "Yet Again" is probably the catchiest pop song on the album. It's like the "Two Weeks" of this album. Other favorites are "Speak in Rounds", "Adelma", "Half Gate", and "Sun in your Eyes".
Overall, I think this is a very solid album by this underrated band. "Veckatimest" is still my favorite Grizzly Bear album, but this album has a lot of very memorable tracks.
Oh, and they are great live!
