12: Deerhunter - Microcastle / Weird Era Cont
"From the (admittedly rose-tinted) perspective of a sprawling double-disc set, however, the overall impression is one of quicksilver imperfection; of grand pop ambition competing with - and occasionally harmonising with - the more familiar desire to burnish and to obscure, to bury one's treasures under a fine mist of scuff and obsessive polish... it's a record to haunt your days for months to come, and another sterling achievement from a band already staking impressive claim as one of the finest of their generation." Alex Denney
