Final Grade: B+
Oh Little Dragon, how I love you so. This album, though not as good as their debut (which I might have to raise from an A- to an A) is still pretty solid. It gets off to a really great start with its opener and title track, which really set the tone for the majority of the album. I like that this album is a pretty good mix of the soulfulness of Little Dragon and electronic, 80s vibe of Machine Dreams. Although, I think it's a little heavy on the Machine Dreams side; I would've dug a lil more Little Dragon. The beginning of this album is seriously killin. "Brush The Heat" is probably my favorite. I was pretty disappointed by the end of this album. Starting at "Precious" it started to trail off for me. I still liked up to "Summertearz," but "When I Go Out" and "Seconds" were pretty lame in my opinion. That being said, it sounds like Little Dragon has found their sound, which is unique to a lot of the stuff out today, and I really get down with it. Still a die-hard LD fan, and will be looking forward to their next release!
