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 This 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.

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
