  1. Midlake might be stuck in the '70s, but they make it sound like the best place on earth.
  2. Nostalgic, sure, but comforting, meticulous, and complex.
  3. So while the subdued vocal harmonies and acoustic folk influences of 70s pop bands Chicago and America can be heard, there is enough intricately layered dream-pop floating around the fleshed-out orchestrations to keep indie-rock fans contented.
