Most people prefer the hazy sunset pop of Moon Safari, but I love this album. It forgoes the gentle feminine touch of their classic album and gets a lot crispier and crunchier, even a little ominous, with a jammy, dancey streak and a lot of experimentation. It's still very pretty - especially epic climax "Don't Be Light" - but it comes with a wonderful edge, perhaps due partially to the collaborative spirit of Beck. It can also be a tiny bit loose and spacey sometimes, but you don't have to look far for a great standout track... I especially like How Does It Make You Feel, the Vagabond, People in the City, and the aforementioned Don't Be Light.
