EDITORS’ NOTES

If Bradford Cox’s first two albums under his Atlas Sound moniker are intimate patchworks of ambient bedroom pop, Parallax is where he fully emerges into the spotlight. Full-blown folk-rockers like “Mona Lisa” stand beside Technicolor art-pop masterpieces like “Te Amo” and “Terra Incognita,” rivaling his best work in Deerhunter and bridging his experimental and accessible sides with beautiful harmony. This album features one of indie rock’s most beloved voices coming into his own without losing his unique sense of grace.

Best Album of 2011

Genius! Pure genius! If you like Deerhunter's Halcyon Digest and Atlas Sound's last album Logos you are going to love this album. Do yourself a favor and buy the vinyl from the 4AD website. It includes a download coupon for the entire album. Vinyl rules!

Bradford's Best

Somehow he managed to make such a wide array of styles flow together so smoothly. Favorite album of the year, hands down.

Thank you, Bradford.
