A great album of eclectic pop and psychedelia in the spirit of Love, Paul Weller, and The Dream Academy. His other band, Deerhunter, has a very different sound with more of a rock base. Get the CD though. The vinyl pressing was a huge fail. Wish I could find a clean copy, but what I have sounds like the stampers were severely contaminated with someone's half-eaten lunch, of maybe just dropped and kicked across the factory floor. Either way, it's just not listenable. Bradford Cox is however, IMO, an under-rated pop-genius. This album is full of hooks, dreamy lyrics, and dark psychedelic tunnels that run through, around, and under this gorgeous collection of pop jewels. Easily one of the best albums of 2011.

UPDATE 10-26-2016: I love this album so I wanted to give restoration by cleaning another try. I performed a deep cleaning process on this LP, and short of using a microscope, can confirm that my copy, bought new, cannot be improved by even a deep cleaning process-- which uses several manual cleaning steps/fluids, and a Hannl RCM. I have used this process to restore to near perfection many absolutely awful sounding LP's with respect to vinyl surface noise, ticks, pops, even skips. Some are cleanable and some are just not so much. This one had very minimal improvement. It was worth the effort trying. I guess I'll try buying another but I doubt it will differ by much.
