I have been listening Lost in the Dream by The War On Drugs allot this week. The album is a nostalgic take on the greater moments of 80s american rock with Bruce Springsteen and later Bob Dylan as clear influences.
The album starts strong, with a joyous energy found in the first two tracks Under Pressure Red Eyes which manage to be lively and demonstrate the sound design we hear throughout the whole work. large synth and organ pad sounds are punctuated by mellow guitars and vocals drenched in reverb.
A real joy to listen to Lost in the Dream continues to grow on me and is worth your attention.
