    I picked this up used, mistaking it for The Field. It's still a great album though. "If You Fail We All Fail" is my song of the year. So far anyway.

    I understand why critics would dismiss this album. There is i'll admit and underlying plea for commercial viability here that is grating but the harmonies ultimately set the band apart. This album will sneak up on the listener give the time and repeated listens. Its among the most versatile records of the year using a myriad of musical cues when most bands specialize in 2 to 3.

This album will sneak up on the listener give the time and repeated listens. Its among the most versatile records of the year using a myriad of musical cues when most bands specialize in 2 to 3. Dynamics, melody, driving rhythms & riffs and those heavenly harmonies previously mentioned all come together here. I did not like this record till I heard it about 10 tiimes but now its among my favs. Do not resign it Everything Last Winter to the used bin at your local store too quickly. Expand

    A brilliant debut that gets better with each listen.

    Boring. The kind of music that feels uncompromising, ambitious but, overall, pretentious. Fields falls down by the weight of its ambitions. They´re not emotive; don´t provoke anything and feels like a college band with the kind of snobby influences and huge records collections but nothing of quality or, at least, good hooks or lyrics or, well, songs.

All this album feels like some pretentious crap of geeks with too much musical knowledge. And this is not good. Expand

  1. Spellbinding.
  2. For the most part Fields are lazily picking their own way between the disparate pastures of folk, pop, post rock and shoegaze on a deliciously sun-dappled day.
  3. The ten songs which make up Everything Last Winter drift along without saying anything at all.
