    I really wanted to like this album because a buddy of mine recommended it, but after 5 or 6 listens I just don't get what the hype is all about. His Dylanesque voice annoys me and I'm a Dylan fan! There are a few songs that are decent but not enough for me to listen to it again.

  1. It’s impossible to fully return all the way home again, but You & Me is the next best thing.
  2. In 'The Blue Route,' it hits home like a 30th birthday--and as the standout 'In The New Year' points out, realizing "It's all over anyhow" can be invigorating, a way of readying oneself for the next, far more interesting chapter.
  3. [Leithauser’s] voice has filled out, like an adolescent discovering girls and his true sound at the same time. But too often on You & Me the rest of the group sounds pedestrian, cautiously still and unambitiously sticking to what they know so well.
