Bradford Cox is a genius. Not only is he a genius, but he has a remarkable life story and I respect him so much not just as an artist, but also a person. I stumbled upon an Atlas Sound (his solo project) track last year, which soon lead me to Deerhunter (the band fronted by Cox). "Revival" soon became an obsession of mine.
Bradford has mastered and reinvented the psychedelic, ambient, hypnotic sound that bands in the past have sought to achieve. He has truly brought it to a whole new level. This album is just amazing. My other top tracks are "Memory Boy", "Desire Lines", "Helicopter" and "Coronado".
