Okay, how did this album ever get to be as revered as it is? I just sat through close to an hour of running time, of which I only really enjoyed about 5 minutes or so (that would be the second track "Wild"). The closer "Irene" was okay too, but it didn't quite win me over. But the rest just sounded like lethargic drivel to me. There are little glimpses of interesting melodies that are immediately drowned in the pale, metallic sound, the awful penchant for overdoing the reverb and the less than excited vocals. *Shrugs*

Ha! The gaze server I'm on circlejerks that album completely, and I'd never listened to it. Glad to know that I shouldn't bother.

I donít know, itís like a really basic version of all the great shoegaze and dream pop we grew up with, but people either donít seem to know that or donít seem to care.

It's actually quite beloved elsewhere (6th highest rated for 2012 and 541st overall at rateyourmusic, as well as countless best-of lists). But, I just couldn't. You say really basic, I say bereft of everything that made those albums great in the first place. None of the lush, beautiful soundcapes, really bland and lifeless vocals and melodies that try to be chipper but get bogged down by the awful production. To me it sounded like an empty husk appropriating a few shoegaze and dream pop tropes without quite grasping why they were ever effective, let alone how to make them effective. But maybe that's just me. A lot of people seem to like it. I just needed to vent.

I thought it was not quite as lovely and playful as Stratosphere, but it had its moments. I get your sentiment though. Will relisten some time.
