9/10 Brian Staff review, 25 September 2008
Just got the new Walkmen album in and being that they've delighted me in the past, I've opted to review the big posh digipak laden bugger. 'You & Me' from the off could be no-one else. They've got that shimmering, ghostly guitar sound, the tidy, dramatic drum, plinky doe-eyed piano flourishes & Hamilton Leithauser's longing, tortured wail to elevate them into the realms of the highly distinguished. It's a stately album that hardly veers from the swinging, booze sodden template of albums past, a slightly shambling hollowed sound imbued with classicism. The boys here are all obsessed with the singer's Rod Stewart-isms but I can hear way beyond those limitations. A maudilin, pissed up/off Rod Stewart possibly? This record has all the majesty you'd expect from this New York quintet and on first listen is well worth a punt even if you're not already a convert. Nice to see Fierce Panda have offered them a home. Obviously a major label didn't know how to market these fellas and they've stuck firmly to their hugely original, clattering & slightly bombastic vision of heartbreaking alternative rock with a haunted ballroom twist. Superb!
