This album is completely different than what he has done in the past. I have been a hardcore fan since the beginning. This is the first time I have heard a drastic departure from what I know as Washed Out. I couldn't stand it the first time I listened, but it did grow on me after 3-4 times through. With that said, I still prefer the older more simple sound rather than more layers of sound on top of another. His music always relieved me of my anxiety and I won't be able to use this album for that as much because some of it makes me nervous. I'm glad to see Earnest go for a different way to find new sounds and that gives me hope for the future that he will change again for the better. In the end I have to keep listening. It's Washed Out.
I was hoping Washed Out didn't peak at Paracosm, but it seems that is the case. This album probably sounds great if you're super high, but if you're not it'll just sound like a waste of money.
Perfect...need this album immediatly!
this is one of their best albums.
