PaulH.Jun 16, 2008Extremely original sound by Dan Snaith...sophisticated harmonies, electronics and blend of vibrant sounds. Caribou gets stronger with every album.
JordanKSep 10, 2007This album convinced me to see Caribou live (on the night before my birthday). Anyway, what I'm trying to express is the fact that the music in this album excites me with every listen. It's both cool (as in easy to listen to) and contemplative. Trying to listen for every part of a song in Andorra is like trying to paint the Mona Lisa with Tetris pieces (minus the frustration). It can be done, but it takes an intimate familiarity with the tune as well as a meticulous amount of care in hearing each part make its way. It may work better just to lose yourself in the music and grasp any particular sound your ear fancies; this should last an inordinate amount of listens as far as re-playability goes. What a fabulous album.… Expand

RickWSep 10, 2007This is awesome. I love this album. Some absolutely sublime tracks.
JRMEAug 28, 2007Hey AD D, you want verse/chorus/verse/chorus? listen to the radio. That's not what Caribou does.
ADDAug 22, 2007hmm. wanted to like it-- absolutely loved the Four Tet remix of Melody Day; but the full Andorra cd shows how a talent for sound production does not translate into being able to write a good verse/chorus style song, structurally or lyrically. very weak. Also I'm tired of Manitoba/Caribou CDs having one good track at the beginning and then lots of bad ones that noodle along. So don't get Andorra, just get that Four Tet remix of Melody Day, and the very first tracks from his last couple releases.… Expand
