Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.67) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Vampire Weekend have gotten better and just about everything they do. The grooves -- always the thing that made the band's twee side work -- are more self-assured."

Entertainment Weekly (p.71) - "VW's elegant under-the-chandelier pop numbers and jaunty upper-crust punk rave-ups still provide subtext-free sonic pleasures....Bright and sweet with plenty to chew on." -- Grade: A-

CMJ - "In a jarringly beautiful manner, Vampire Weekend has grown....MODERN VAMPIRES OF THE CITY stands to become the group's PAUL'S BOUTIQUE, raising the bar from being a fun but safe band to breaking ground ahead of their peers."

Billboard (p.41) - "The new set is the group's most accomplished work to date....Just fine-tuned, expertly crafted music."

Q (Magazine) (p.91) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] clever record. It's also, however, one that glows with tangible human warmth, heartbeat never failing to keep pace with its brainwaves."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.84) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] the fragrant baroque-pop of 'Step' and the maniacal ivory hammering of 'Unbelievers.'"
