iTunes Review

The Walkmen crank out a tough factory rhythm for “Angela Surf City.” It’s the sound of man battling against the machine. The drums turn things dark and greasy like much great rock ‘n’ roll. But the band operates on a different level. They add lightness to cosmopolitan-sounding tunes such as “Juveniles,” “Blue As Your Blood” and “Stranded,” where singer Hamilton Leithauser sings with an extra lounge lizard in his voice. There’s a somber undertow to “Victory” while “All My Great Designs” uses a great amount of air in its arrangement to make a greater impact. The band’s minimalism is quite appealing. “Woe is Me” is actually quite quick and bright, despite its title. “Torch Song” could be an old R&B/Doo Wop ballad from the 1950s. “While I Shovel the Snow” is another aching ballad with a sense of wit mixed in with its tears. The title track and “Orange Sunday” bring things to a solemn and quiet close.

The wait is over...

Brilliant! The Walkmen are an underestimated, under appreciated, and underrated band who have captured my heart. Their sound is haunting and unique, harkening back to a time when records were cherished and listened to from beginning to end. Hamilton Leithauser has a voice that will stay with me forever. 2010 has been an extraordinary year for great new music. The Walkmen have just put the icing on the cake. Best album of 2010.

Pretty Terrific...

I have to say, I've been listening to an early release of this for a couple of weeks and at first I was pretty pissed. Anyone who's seen these guys live know that they bring it. The past two shows I've been lucky enough to attend they did a version of Juveniles with whistling in place of guitars and to be quite honest when I heard the guitar version on the album, I was taken aback. It took me a few listens to get the idea behind Lisbon. It only took one week for me to get fully on board. The title track closes the album better than any song I've heard this year. Standouts include Angela Surf City, Blue as Your Blood, and Torch Song. I'm beginning to really love this album... just as I have every previous Walkmen album. Not to be missed.

Stellar Album

The Walkmen do not disappoint nor do they dwell on the sounds of previous albums. If you are a Walkmen fan already, this is 5-star. For anyone else, it is a solid 4. While the familiar guitar and organ is present, the orchestration of the new material has grown and the results are stellar.
