    It's an enormous-sounding, splashy album.

    As the album of record, it does aptly chronicle Portugal. The Man’s unabashed musical evolution/experimentation from album to album. Despite its bucolic, peaceful namesake, it’s a decidedly grimey vivisection of millennial pop expressly positioned to act as revolutionary mouthpiece for a generation of the disillusioned.

    Bouncy production keep things light; Pharrell-ish Feel It Still, soulful So Young; but perhaps too light. [Jul 2017, p.96]

    While all that tinkering and aiming for the center have reached their payoff with the most commercially viable record of the group’s career, something of what made Portugal. The Man unique feels like it’s been lost.

    Instead of putting their own offbeat stamp on danceable pop music, Portugal. The Man abandons their once-unique sound and retreats into imitation.

    This is a great album. And while I get why P.tm fans would dislike it, the sound of it isn't bad, it's actually quite good. It's justThis is a great album.

In my opinion it doesn't hit the same that Evil Friends did, but the tracks still hold value.

    PTM were one of my favorite bands up till this album. I'm hesitant to ever criticize artists due to the time and effort put into their craft,PTM were one of my favorite bands up till this album. I'm hesitant to ever criticize artists due to the time and effort put into their craft, but I can compare it to their previous efforts. The past decade, PTM released quality, unique music that exponentially built them a fanbase of loyal fans. The later half of Evil Friends was underwhelming, but this album was underwhelming from start to end. Feel it Still reclaimed some of the magic from their previous efforts, but every other song was not something I would listen to again. Maybe this is the point in their career that they'll never return to their old sound. At least I have the previous albums. Expand
