    Mostly, though, the album is burst after burst of cheerful, weird pop songs that will have you in a state of nostalgic happiness.
  2. Without any stylistic or conceptual thread tying these songs together (other than the generic tag of lo-fi pop) this album leaves just a bit wanting. It's a great album, but it's kept from being one for the ages based on that disjointedness.

    In contrast to the Kinks, White Fence eschews the immediacy of hooks in favor of impenetrability.

    This is clearly a departure point, unexpected but more than welcome.

    Even with all of the bands he punches the time card for, it's starting to become very clear that, with Is Growing Faith, his solo efforts are the ones that reap the most rewards.

    The album doesn't cohere; it wanders.

    Is Growing Faith feels more like an actual lost psychedelic-era gem than a revivalist record.
