GRIZZLY BEAR, "YELLOW HOUSE"



This album has grown on me more than any other release of 2006. It just has a perfect blend of gentle harmonies, thick, warm ambience and just enough sonic experimentation to make it interesting but not pretentious. Great album.

Is it better than the last one?

I didn't think their debut was worth all the hype. I love this cover art on this one, though. Perhaps I'll track down a copy on your reccommendation.

It's a completely different album then their debut. I agree that the first one was overhyped, but it's justified for this album.

need to check this one out.
interesting move by warp records, seems to have worked out though.

their first album was awful.

been really turned off by their insistent self promotion on myspace & general vibe. its ridiculous.
