It is a great record imo. But then, so far, eveything they have done has been pretty great.

Maybe I'm just watching all the wrong videos, but Fantano rarely gives any album anything higher than 7/10 does he?

Some enjoyably disparate reviews for the latest album. Petridis in the Guardian loves it, like Pitchfork:

Safe to say this lot do not ('the Instagram of bands' :lol: ):

After another listen I would go with Let It Happen, Disciples (wish it was longer!), Cause I Am A Man & New Person, Same Old Mistakes.

^ This is pretty much the same for me! I've still only heard it a few times though

Anyway, I'm surprised with Allmusic's 3/5 http://www.allmusic.com/album/currents- ... 0002848644" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
I thought they'd give it 3.5 or 4

Those two songs aren't much better. In fact, they're probably worse.
