    While D is undoubtedly a grower, it's unfortunate that White Denim's experimental tendencies don't always lend themselves equally well to good songs.

    Overall, D is a measured if occasionally overcooked beast that proves difficult to digest as a whole.

    The confidence of this Texan trio's last effort (2009's Fits) is lacking on their first major-label release.

I enjoy listening to it but there are no real standout tracks on it for me which, despite it being good only gets a 7 from me. Another slight quibble is that alot of the songs sound identical - I know the band have a certain style and they carry it off well but at times some of the tracks are indistinguishable. Full Review »

There are songs that sound great and gives you hope what to expect in the future, but then there are songs that try too hard reach a wide audience. Ultimately the White Denim fanatic you want to be is tamed by some D's repressed tunes. Full Review »
