Im gonna come clean, i did infact download the leak of the album back in febuary. I felt awful doing it but i had too, hearing all the buzz and praise i would not have been able to control myself for three whole moths. When i did finnaly rip it, i planned to write a review a week after, and i just haven't been able to up until now. Thats the thing about Veckatimest, it floors you in ways your completley unperpared for. Even in it's early leaked form you could tell it was an incredible album, but now in full quality its easy to see that Veckatimest is a beautiful, immense, classic album that will be talked about for years to come. "Two Weeks" and "While You Wait for the Others" have been talked about alot already, but those are the two tracks that probably will earn Grizzly Bear the most new fame. But for the avid Grizzly Bear listener theres so much here to devour. Songs like "All We Ask" "Ready, Able" and "Fine for Now" have such beautiful melodies and harmonies and along with excellent production from Chris Taylor, these are songs to lose yourself in, and ones to cherish. With Veckatimest, Grizzly Bear have crafted a truly remarkable album and one that will be engraved in anyone who listen's to it's mind for years to come

The thing with the Killers is you either really like them or really dont. Im one of the people who do, although i thought Day and Age was worse than their previous two efforts. But they performed "A Dustland Fairytale" on Letterman last night and it was great, definatly makes me want to see them live.
