Sad to say, I'm not big on this new Neon Indian album. I'd like to think that it's not because of the hype that was built around the project's last album, Psychic Chasms, but I'm afraid that might be a possibility. I don't think I was expecting the world of this album--especially since the last album didn't give me the world. To put it simply, I guess I was expecting something different. To me, this album feels like a serious and well-recorded version of Psychic Chasms.
With a plethora of reverb and dance music sounds from the Neon Indian-related sideproject Vega. sole member Alan Palomo is reliving past glories more than he is excelling into the future.
