9 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Ought’s first couple of albums offered a tense, splintered if anthemic vision of post-punk, leavening their discord with hooks, their hail with the occasional hit of sunshine. Far more beautiful but no less exploratory, their third album finds them ascending to the gloomy grandeur of bands like The National or Protomartyr, from the gentle grit of “Disgraced in America” to the Joy Division-ish “These 3 Things” to the striking “Desire,” which blooms from a jagged whisper to a soul-dredging ballad.

So they are changing. Just like every other band. And it's really f'n good.

Great new album from an amazing band. These are their most ambitious songs, and it is cool to see them expand their sound. Room Inside the World is Ought's richest, best album. Looking forward to seeing them in concert again!
