Duplicate songs and no album purchase? UK Google Music user here, I can see 28 songs, some are "album only" and I can't search the album directly. Not available in the UK yet? :( I've heard most the songs already so I can already say this is a fantastic album :D
They returned, they rocked, they conquered Alt-J's sophomore album is nothing like AAW. Reminiscent of the sounds that made it so popular TIAY embarks on a new territory Yes it's still ∆ But I wouldn't call it an evolution They have yet to evolve in their sound. Even after the departure of bassist Gwil Sainsbury the trio has attempted to move forward. Left Hand Free will stick out like a sore thumb. A track that obviously does not fit-in w/ this masterpiece of an LP Regardless, it's good to have them back and I can only anticipate their next release
An awesome sound. This album has a very different sound from An Awesome Wave, but it still feels distinctly like Alt-J. This Is All Yours lacks the gospel-like vocals & dark, heavy atmosphere of AAW; instead it is much lighter and folk. As a whole the album is quite good, the only track that I feel is weak enough to mention is Choice Kingdom. Definitely worth a listen for a fan of Alt-J's AAW, or anyone in general.
Great mellow album It's nice to take a break from the metal once in a while and listen to something like Alt-J. This album flows well from track to track with the exception of Left Hand Free; good track, just out of place. This group is a nice way to start your Saturday morning.
Their return couldn't have been better From the experimental, catchy intro to the end, alt-J never fail to entertain and be inventive. They still blend genres like crazy and reference the Wu-Tang Clan, Blue is the Warmest Colour and older songs, they still get the weirdest but best-working ideas like sampling Miley or the cut-and-paste vocals, and the French or impromptu lyrics are here more than ever. alt-J have changed, but in a good way, which makes this a worthy follow-up to An Awesome Wave, if you ignore the existence of Left Hand Free.
Seeing them grow. I remember listening to their first album when it was released. Amazing. Left me speechless and I enjoyed every song. I feel prideful because this is the first band that I've followed from the very start and seen grow into something grandiose. Gives me chills hearing Left Hand Free on the radio. Alt-J are special to me and this album continues the uniqueness that is Alt-J. Thanks for another solid album guys.
