    First thing I thought when I listened to this album was these guys have chops. Unlike other "indie" bands out there, white denim use their technical abilities to shape something entirely their own. The album is often chaotic but the layers ad up to something beautiful. Sounds like Iron & Wine gone prog rock.

    Listening to D by White Denim is both captivating and infuriating. 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.

    Ten really good, really well-performed psych-country-jazz-prog-garage rock songs with little to no cohesion among them, almost as if the band just presented their record company with a slew of songs & said, "Here, pick your favorites."

    A very consistent album - almost every one of the 10 tracks are as good as each other so as an album it really slips together nicely. 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. Expand

    White Denim remain unusually talented musicians for whom eclecticism is the rule, and expectation the harbinger of some totally bad vibes.

    D is one for the record books, if not because it's an overflowing melting pot of talent and ideas, then because of how many times you'll find yourself hitting the play button again.

    This is an album which bears repeated listening, and which deserves to become more than just a summer soundtrack; but rather one of those releases that can be revisited again and again, with each listen revealing new details and delights.
