NME writes: “On this spacey and sprawling dream-pop adventure, the great modern
American songwriter exudes the wholesome, easy charm he’s always held. Vile has always
been the epitome of someone comfortable in their own skin, but he displays that more
than ever on this spacey and sprawling adventure.” Score: 4/5.
Turn Up The Volume: Kurt Vile is an expert in writing lazy songs for lazy moments
of lazy people. The problem is that almost all of the songs on all of his albums are
lazy. Therefore he didn’t manage yet to deliver a masterpiece. But to be honest, he
doesn’t fabricate bad albums either.
Sorry, I have to go now, I’m moving slowly now … towards
my couch. I’m lazy and I need lazy tunes. Hello Kurt?
