TomH.Dec 18, 2007A great second album from Beirut, beautiful and well worhty of critic's praise for it.
TiagoF.Oct 14, 2007One of the best albums this year by far.
EricC.Nov 29, 2007Well, they found their own sound and use it extremely well, something very few bands can say. The lack of guitars is bound to turn off more mainstream listeners, but once you get in to it, you realize that they don't need them, at all. A little over the top at times, but the mournful vocals are a strength in the end. Though very different, they somehow remind me of the Arcade Fire, a band that never lacks critical and public acclaim. So I can't help but be excited when I listen to this album, easily one of the year's best, because I hear endless potential. These guys are bound to produce a classic that will blow the indie scene away. Until then, we have two very good releases that will hopefully get them noticed.… Expand
mattaOct 16, 2007Not quite as gorgeous as his debut but still mostly wonderful. It's currently hovering right outside my top twenty of the year.
LuigiOct 14, 2007I don't think this sophomore work is better than the debut disc. Nevertheless is pleasant, interesting and also intriguing.
