    I've fallen hard for this one. It's better than Microcastle. Hard to believe, but I'm saying it.

    This is simply pure genius. The song will make you feel good and "chill". I am a fan of Panda Bear and having him in this album was a great surprise and it made so much sense after listening to Walkabout. Love Atlas Sound and love this album.

    A scrapbook of some brilliant and creative songs. Doesn't flow as well Cox's other works, and it's quite short, but it's worth every second. Anyone who was not to fond of 'Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel' can find something to love on 'Logos', which is far more accessible than it's predecessor.

    Hey guys ! The name is not Brandon, but Bradford Cox... I disagree with the Guardian : the melodies are much simpler than Animal Collective's, but it's nethertheless a good album, for the homogenic atmosphere it conveys, quite positive (like, after all, with Microcastle), some beautiful melodies (Shelia), and, again, Cox's sensuous voice.

    This is one of the only artists out there that, if they were to die, it would be truly tragic due to the loss of dazzling future works of art.

    wonderful album with some great standout tracks such as Shelia and Kid Klimax. Easy album to get lost in. Up there amongst his best work, but probably not better than Microcastle.

    Bradford Cox is a legend, and all of his personal thoughts and emotions pour in as his solo project provides a intimate insight to his imagination. Throughout this whole album, never once did I want to skip, not even for the beginning song, "The Light That Failed", with its beautiful vocal subtleties. "Logos" is an album that people with a true love of music will clamor for. It's just that good.

  1. These songs are nearly as wide-ranging and comprehensive as an actual atlas, but Cox keeps charting new territory.
  2. Logos doesn't displace Microcastle as Cox's masterwork to date. But it's an intriguing, often beautiful addition to a rapidly expanding body of work that has seemingly boundless potential.
  3. Logos is still a predominantly insular affair and all the better for it, with his aching melodies and ethereal arrangements pushing open the doors to a remarkably vivid inner world.
