    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The best album of 2009. Bromst sounds like an Animal Collective album, played by a drunken dj, while he was listening to a Vampire Rodents album..... Expand

  1. Here we see the often-resourceful Deacon approaching a big canvas with too little paint, and the result is a record which feels bloated, overlong, and ultimately empty.

    Even at his most contemplative and nuanced, Deacon remains a DIY trickster at heart.
  3. Deacon nips the synthetics that allowed Spidermanâ??s sandpaper production to grate, opting instead for smoothly textured layers, a trick that strengthens a brilliantly executed dance album into dramatically structured art.
