My favorite tune: Yet Again

Grizzly Bear‘s fourth studio album draws its power from three tent pole songs: ‘Sleeping Ute’, ‘Yet Again’, and ‘Sun In Your Eyes’. Every other songs in between, unfortunately, don’t add much in term of strengths and qualities. Either Ed Droste and co. become predictable, less experimental, or somehow, shifting their sound, maybe unconsciously, and dangerously, closer and closer to mainstream.

My Rating: 6/10
