Fleet Foxes - Crack-Up mp3 album

Fleet Foxes triumphantly emerge from hiatus with their most progressive effort ye.

Album trailer for Fleet Foxes' new album, "Crack-Up," out . 6. Video by Sean Pecknold.

Crack-Up is the third studio album by Seattle-based folk band Fleet Foxes. Released on June 16, 2017 as the follow-up to their 2011 album Helplessness Blues, Crack-Up is the band's first release on Nonesuch Records. It is their first release in six years, following a three-year hiatus from 2013 to 2016. Crack-Up was recorded at various locations across the United States between July 2016 and January 2017: Electric Lady Studios, Sear Sound, The Void, Rare Book Room, Avast, and The Unknown

Released June 16, 2017. 1. I Am All That I Need, Arroyo Seco, Thumbprint Scar Lyrics. Beyond that, there are themes in the essay that come up a lot on the album, both lyrically and musically. The essay addresses the necessity of holding two opposing thoughts in one’s mind at once, in the I can’t go on/I must go on sense. I’ve struggled at times with finding a solid, objective reason to live, or I should say I’ve struggled with the notion of needing an airtight reason-almost anything you cling to can be explained away with logic in one way or another if you’re crafty enough

In the six years since Fleet Foxes’ last album, their former drummer has eclipsed them in the public eye by embracing a flamboyant persona fluent in sex, drugs, self-awareness, and sarcasm, like a not-so-subtle referendum on his previous gig. None of Josh Tillman’s jokes have been crueler than the unmistakable alliteration embedded in the title of the first Father John Misty album: Fear Fu. Crack-Up contains his most compelling writing to date because it’s so damn relatable in 2017-reacting and retreating inwards as people and institutions fail to meet the standards set in one’s head. Columbia University has been an unexpectedly major influencer of indie aesthetics in the past decade due to its inextricable association with Vampire Weekend, whose self-titled debut serves as the most convincing collegiate promotional material ever constructed.

Fleet Foxes return with a grand, theatrical approach to music as a whole, and although they reminisce on their grand, prog-folk glory days, Crack-Up as a musical statement is genre-less.

It's a method employed throughout Crack-Up's 11 tracks, which seem to zig and zag through zones of chaos, fellowship, and transcendence as Pecknold the scholar unveils his strange architecture in layers of detail and nuance. That the nearly nine-minute centerpiece, "Third of May/Ōdaigahara," was chosen as the album's lead single says something about the availability of easily digestible material on Crack-Up, and yet its aspirations are the glue that holds it all together

Crack-Up ‎(2xLP, Album, Club, Ltd, Num, Blu). Says "20 produced" in the notes but 39 people have them, and not everyone's copies are signed, so what is the truth? I made the correction as there are some signed copies and some unsigned floating around.

Understandably, some critics have been keen to contrast Crack-Up with Pure Comedy, Tillmans’ latest album as Father John Misty, but it seems to bear more comparison to Bon Iver’s 22, A Million, another wilfully abstruse record made by an American alt-rocker who is disproportionately unsettled by a modicum of fame.

Macage
I bought this at a store in Michigan at the end of 2017. If you're looking for an excellent sounding pressing, go for this one. It is one of the better sounding records in my collection. Rich, detailed, dynamic, BIG.
Sagda
I bought this one, but there were 3 vinyls instead of 2. duplicate for sides CD.
Gindian
So, go for the black vinyl or no go in case of sound and quality pressing?
Goldenfang
Same here. Love the pressing and its flat and quiet too.
Funny duck
The black vinyl sounds very good in my system. Pretty quiet, nice dynamics, gets the "dramatic" sound well out there.
Roru
I bought this album on a whim as I'd heard it was fantastic. I'd never heard a Fleet Foxes song before and I was really looking forward to it. While this pressing is fine and I have no issues with it, the album itself is garbage. I do apologise to Fleet Foxes fans when I say that though, as I know loads of people like it. I genuinely don't see the appeal with this album. It's produced very well and the mixing is great, but it's just terribly boring (to me, anyway).
Painshade
I have to agree with you. My mom got it for me for Christmas and said it was great. I can see how some would think so but I was bored out of my mind.
krot
Fleet foxes posted on their instagram on 7/21 that they are signing more copies and all the amazon orders that were canceled with be fulfilled.
ndup
Truly great music. But unfortunately the sound quality of the vinyl is poor. There is only low background noise or crackles and the vinyl looks great, but it all sounds hard and undefined. Maybe badly mastered for vinyl? But I have t say, I like the poly lined inner record sleeves...
Marg
Annnnddddd most of the orders got canceled. Thanks Amazon. Please enter at least 1 more.
Gavinrage
not sure if you follow the Fleet Foxes subreddit, but maybe this thread will give you hope (as It did me): https://www.reddit.com/r/fleet_foxes/comments/6omynz/anyone_else_have_amazon_cancel_their_order_for/
Sharpbringer
Can someone confirm if this is the black or the coloured VMP version?
Mall
Okay thanks! We would have lucked out so badly if it would have been the coloured one...but a signed black copy is just as awesome!!
Syleazahad
Its been confirmed black by those who have already received it.
Virn
This may be the most digital and sad sounding record I own, even if it doesn't have crackles. makes it hard to enjoy the music. Very, very disappointed.
Runeshaper
So are these shipping already?? At least 10 words must be entered. Please enter at least 5 more.
Madis
Yes, already received mine. Nothing extra to identify this pressing expect the sigatures. Sealed pressings will have a unique barcode over the factory barcode.
Doulkree
I read there were only 250, but I can't confirm.
Sironynyr
That went fairly quick, glad I didn't wait any longer to buy mine. Anybody know what quantity this version is limited to?
Fordg
Pecknold Posted on IG that there were 250-300 signed copys. Though he also said they would be from VPM. Maybe that's were theyre getting the 250 copies?
Sha
I've seen 250 from some sellers on Ebay, but i haven't found a concrete source to back it up. I would guess it's closer to 1000. It is Amazon, after all.
Delan
My friend love this one and i dont know why. He got two copies of it.
Monin
Nice heavy stock gatefold jacket....vinyl a little flimsy though. At least cut by Ryan K Smith so sounds nice!
Zaryagan
Daaaaaaaaaaaamn I have to turn the record between Naiads and Kept Woman? Thats the most amazing transition ever on the CD version.
Stylish Monkey
Got the black vinyl European press yesterday although I ordered the colored vmp release as well, but couldn't wait for its arrival. That said, the standard pressing sounds beautiful. Silent background, crackle free and quite dynamic. Along with Slowdive my favorite record this year so far.
Rocky Basilisk
No, not at all. The transitions are very smooth in my opinion! But I grew up with vinyl and switching sides throughout play, so that was never a big dealbreaker for me. I rather have a superiour sounding 2LP set than a sqashed, crackly single LP.
Kazigrel
Does having 4 LP sides impact the overall listening experience?
