    One of the best (and most underrated) albums of the year. Every composition is dense, beautiful, and intricate yet maintains a light playfulness that blows all this "chillwave" out of the water. I also saw them at bonnaroo, and every song became an awesome jam. Very excited to see what they do next.

    Every song on this album has so much energy with absolutely stunning musicianship. I can't believe how under the radar this album seems to be, really an extremely under rated album.

  1. Pigeons may not be the defining moment all the blog buzz hinted at, and Luke Temple may still have several rough patches to smooth out in his songwriting process, but with Here We Go Magic's subtly enchanting second record, it sure is fun to listen to him work out the kinks.
  2. It's at once a work of larger ambition and greater focus than its predecessor, beginning brilliantly and continuing in the same manner for its entire length.
  3. Here We Go Magic have made a fantastic album that is at once inseparable from its Brooklyn beginnings and transcendental of its place in time and space.
