 Fantastic Pop

It is important not to get caught up in the afro-pop influence of Vampire Weekend, yes, it adds a fresh dimension to the music industry, but the indie-pop sensibilities are all there.

THe standout tracks often come when they manage to get the right mix between THe Strokes and a steel band, these come in the shape of "Mansord Roof", "Oxford Comma" and "A-Punk", all brilliant tunes. BUt there is plenty in their more conventional side, "I stand corrected" has a very Strokesy feel to it, and it is a great mid tempo apology, it goes with the theme of social awkwardness, snobbery and phoney's ("Why would you lie about how much coal you have"-Oxford Comma. "How am I supposed to pretend, I never wanna see you again"-Campus.) add that with the escapist story telling of "A-Punk" and "WAlcott" and you have an interesting lyricist in Koening.

The guitar is quite abstract, the drums are excellent, some really great production is at work, and the orchestral arrangements are refreshing (especcially on "M-79") and it makes this a really fresh debut.

THey have made a brilliant pop album, I overplayed it and listened to it about 4 times everyday for a week (No overstatement) but it wore off quite quickly, so maybe not a classic but certainly essential as I suspect it could still sound great in a few years.

 A Bat Out of Musical Heaven

A debut of this calibre hasn't been released since the strokes first pop at the industry. Vampire Weekend have successfully infused brilliant upbeat indie with a hint of what can only be described as Baloo and Mowgli jamming in the jungle, you simply can't help tapping your feet in tandem and smiling. Thank the heavens, a band has finally managed to change the indie scene into something universally enjoyable.

From the winter delights found on the chorus of 'A-Punk' to the remarkable lyrics of 'Oxford Comma' who could say no to this album? At first glance this may seem to be one of those wafer-thin, one-trick-pony bands you've been hearing so much about, but I truly believe this is a talented quartet that is definitely here to stay. The likes of 'M79' and 'Bryn' may require a few listens to fully appreciate but to follow them up there are hidden gems such as 'The Kids Don't Stand a Chance' and 'Walcott' which slowly wind down the album so well that there is no beginning or end to this 11 track musical masterpiece.

I strongly recommend this album if you have any interest in Indie music, Caribbean music and/or generally being happy. How a couple of New York college seniors smashed the shackles of Indie is beyond me. Vampire Weekend + Sunshine = Pure Unfiltered Happiness.

 Out of nowhere comes one amazing record

I absolutely agree: this could well be the best album of 2008.
After one quick listen at the mp3 soundbites I got hooked immediately, bought the CD and never stopped listening to it since.
This instant cult record is something completely new, it doesn't resemble anything I've listened to in the last couple of years: it's got strings, chamberlins, drums, hand drums, harpsichords, guitars, you name it...
True, it's only 34 minutes long... but what 34 minutes!
Trouble is: will these guys ever be able to top this?

 Best album of 2008!

I can't think of a song on this album i don't like- not just that, but pretty much every song is single-quality. The only flaw i could point out is that it's quite short, running only about half an hour, but it's a half hour of excellence. Excellent replay value though, and the musical stylings are varied enough that you never get tired of hearing it- they have an indie-rock, reggae-inspired, emo-style sound, which is endlessly fresh, great for dancing to, singing along to or just listening to quietly in the background. Seriously- buy this album, it's not that expensive and you won't be disappointed!

 Absolutely brilliant!

This album is awesome... and it gets better with every listen. Kind of like a cross between Paul Simon and the Strokes, it's diverse, original, and just plain fantastic. Definitely buy it.
