9/10 Jack 19th January 2015

Fleet Foxes beautifully paint Yeats' 'Lake Of Innisfree' in musical form, with the same simple yearning for a simple life in a natural sanctuary transposed expertly into Peckner's words. The album wonderfully rolls from one highlight to another; the screamed frustration of 'The Shrine / An Argument' to the saxophone of that same song, all backed by the wonderful arrangements in vocal harmonies and gentle picked acoustics. For an album completely removed from its context, Fleet Foxes somehow construct the folk album of 2011.
