Customer Reviews

there's a reason why it got the top spot

somehow, VW doesnt ever make a bad song in my ears, and this album is no exception.
Step, Ya Hey, and Everlasting Arms are the stand outs for the casual listener (Ya hey is very replayable but also listen to the live version)

and as always theres their more poignant and sentimental songs: Hannah Hunt, Obvious Bicycle and Young Lion which are all lovely to the ears (knowing the backstory behind 'young lion' makes listening to this song even more warming)

theyve also got some vibey tracks such as unbelievers, diane young, worship you and Finger Back (Diane Young and Worship you was a grower for me but DY becomes really catchy as you listen more)

my favorites would be: Ya Hey, Everlasting Arms, Step, Hannah Hunt, Young Lion, Don't Lie, and Hudson

The last and darkest of the album trilogy, Vampire Weekend has produced a simultaneously haunting and charming album, making my year worthwhile.
in other words, I LOVE IT

My album of the year

Easily the best I've heard in 2013

So excited

Diane Young is easily my favorite song so far this year
