6/10 Brian Staff review, 20 May 2009
Now truth be told, I haven't got the most sophisticated music taste sometimes and the last Grizzly Bear album, 'Yellow House' being as lauded as it was, did little for me. I prefer more feral & demented pleasures much of the time, or straight chill out so I sit there floppy eyed like Dylan the Rabbit or grinning like a stoned Cheshire cat. On newie 'Veckatimest' they're a-shitting in my ears with a slightly baroque, harmony drenched sound that often bears resemblance to the Beach Boys school of honey'd 'n hazy classical pop. I think there's occasionally also parallels with Animal Collective but with the arrangements gentler & much less day-glo tribal techno. There's an undoubted passion & elegance within these songs and many rich, melodic layers and incredibly pleasant production frills ocuring througout this batch of downtempo grand-pop nuggets. I can hear bits of The Kinks, Bolan, late Beatles, Pink Floyd & early Bowie strongly all over this record, it's quite spaced & progressive but like I say, there's no doubting the intrepid musicianship throughout. Fink is, I wus bekoming bored ov my tits so I fell asleap in the korner. ZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZ ZZZZZZZz. CD & LP innit.

8/10 Sven Customer review,

As I do love the mellow, soft-toned 'chamber-pop' as people call it, the album itself wasn't much of a leap from their previous ones - but comparing it to bands like Animal Collective and Beach Boys is a bit crass... I respect opposing views on what I like, but to compare them to fluke-artists is nothing short of ignorant...
