Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.78) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[They have] a suave sound that incorporates ska, New Wave and Afro-pop....Vampire Weekend mostly earn points the old-fashioned way: by writing likable songs you'll be glad to revisit next month."

Rolling Stone (p.89) - Ranked #10 in Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums Of 2008 -- "Casual as a cardigan, willfully optimistic, ultratuneful and surprisingly danceable, VAMPIRE WEEKEND is built to last."

Spin (p.91) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Vampire Weekend have made a truly fresh, fun, and smart record....They spit witty lyrics on subjects they clearly know..."

Spin (p.50) - Ranked #14 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "What really matters is the sheer youthful effervescence and musical ingenuity of these Ivy Leaguers' self-titled debut."

Uncut (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "VW show themselves possessed of great strength of character, unafraid to wear hearts, or intelligence, on their sleeves."

Alternative Press (p.153) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Combining elements of ska, reggae and Afro-pop with traditional rock structures, songs like 'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa' have a carefree energy..."

Q (Magazine) (p.109) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Extremely inventive....Vampire Weekend are the musical equivalent of a Wes Anderson movie..."

Blender (Magazine) (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Vampire Weekend's version of globalization is to tightly and smartly woven to be mere dilettantism..."

Harp (magazine) - "[A] no-dud sleection of instant party starters....[With a] breezy, endless-weekend sound..."

Clash (magazine) (p.71) - Ranked #2 in Clash's "The 40 Best Albums of 2008" -- "[An] eclectic mix of upbeat indie, Afrobeat and 21st century baroque..."

The Word (magazine) (p.105) - "[A] debut album of quite dazzling brilliance and novelty....These songs are a joy, both intelligent and catchily uplifting."
