Vampire Weekend released their third LP Modern Vampires of the City yesterday, to rave reviews; many critics are even claiming this is Vampire Weekend's best album. And yes, I agree. This IS VW's best album. As a big Vampire Weekend fan, I remember being skeptical initially after hearing "Step" and "Diane Young", (the pitch shifting on the latter annoyed me at first) but after hearing all of the songs, it all comes together, and never feels boring, obnoxious, and no fillers are in sight.
This is a landmark artistic statement from the group in my personal opinion. I need to fully listen to the album several more times to grasp all of its wonderful details, but trust me when I say this is some of the best music from the golden Indie era of the late 2000's and early 2010's. You will not regret it.
Highlights (Well, the whole album is a highlight)
Just posted a review for Paper Mario Sticker Star on the 3DS. It's a good game, but also very disappointing compared to previous entries. Find out why.
Yesterday I purchased Fire Emblem Awakening (3DS), along with the 3DS edition of Pro Evolution Soccer 2012. This game is AMAZING!!!
I love the transition between 2D and 3D graphics, which I recall was done by Wild Arms on the PS1 in 1997. The 3D effect is also great, and I noticed that the game uses Kid Icarus Uprising's engine (I believe). The sparkles on the screens also provide hidden items, which is great! I also love getting items from certain enemies after beating them.
But what makes the game amazing is its depth. It's extremely fun battling and its satisfying as hell to see all the different animatons. The trade feature in the game is absolute genius. The pair up feature is so awesome because it can temproarily increase two fo your characters' stats. It seems like there's so much to do, and there's never a dull moment in the game, regardless of how long the battles may be.
This could end up being the game of the year. I haven't played anything this much fun in a while (and yes I say that all the time, but maybe I mean it here!!!). Highly recommended to all 3DS owners!! THIS is the next must have 3DS masterpiece!!!
