    It knows exactly all the right reference points and notes to hit, and does so with surprising confidence. But it clocks in at just barely over 30 minutes, and the last few tracks are regrettably unremarkable.

    There aren’t any bad songs here, but ultimately Bazaar comes off more like a compilation album of great tracks than a carefully edited album.

    Bazaar achieves what it goes out to do well, but could do with a few more of the mind-benders they are fully capable of achieving.

    The album is dark and haunted, with the same sense of paranoia that touched Curiosity, but even with production handled again by Unknown Mortal Orchestra's Jacob Portrait, the songs sound more live, visceral in a way that comes when a band graduates from low-key house parties close to home to nightly international touring.

    Although it becomes a bit too intricate (and therefore slightly boring) at times, the album is a fine example of the infinite possibilities created by the so-called post-indie/hipster-psych scene without taking itself too serious.
  6. Bazaar elevates Wampire alongside those bands, while retaining the skewed oddness that made them so likeable in the first place.
  7. 42
    Bazaar lacks a cohesive thread to signify any real musical progression.
