This year's desert island disc

I haven't heard a stronger album in years; each tracks stands on its own, yet, as a whole, the record never flags for a moment. The Wrens write music that's both intelligent and melodic, and this album stands as an exception to the rule that music dear to the Pitchfork crowd has to be esoteric and alienating. Huge, cathartic, and beautifully relentless.

Not just kosher, Glatt!

Having seen these patriots rock this album live before experiencing their unique brand of pure love in the form of recorded sound, I was completely unprepared for the gentle beauty they synthesize at will upon every single track. This just goes to show how giants see the world differently from we mere mortals. Buy Meadowlands or be bereft of the lifeblood of modern music.
