'Music for grown ups'
I must say I was somewhat shocked, but astounded in equal measure really. Listening to this album was challenging, surprising and left me feeling elated. A real treasure this album and a break from the norm for Fleet Foxes. I hear new things that are texturally entising each time I listen and I have played this album four times in quick succession, it's that good and that challenging.
Best album so far
By If you have even a passi
I love Crack Up. As soon as I heard the first single, 'Third of May/Oigihara', I knew FF were on to a new level. I was very happy to hear the second and third singles, 'Fool's Errand' and 'If You Need To, Keep Time On Me', were just as good. Having brought the album, I can safely say it is the most stunning collection of songs they have released so far, and whilst not as instantly accesible as their amazing debut, it is leaps and bounds ahead of their slightly pretentious second album.
It may take a few listens to sink in, but they have really acheived something special here, managing to retain their much loved sound whilst expanding it into something very fresh and unique.
Very difficult listen. Tried several times to get into it but to be honest found it rather bland and short of musical ideas. Not as good as previous efforts.
So many amazing textures
So much to listen to, really enjoyed this album. Has been reviewed at around three stars, however I think if you like the Fleet Foxes other works you'll love this!

Hope the rest of the album is as good as the first two tracks. Such a great unique sound. You can't help but fall in love with their sound.
Fleets R Back!

Fleet Foxes new album 'Crack-Up' is bound to be their best album to date!!
Been away to long but looking forward to hearing Americas 'Finest vocal harmony group' this decade!
Worth the wait!

If the rest of the album is as good as the first track then it's already a contender for album of the year! Well worth the wait. Been too long!
