Synopsis

Album Description
Two LP Set Vinyl pressing of the Atlas Sound album, Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel. One of the latest 'true queer art Punks' to emerge from the cracked pavement of Southern suburban sprawl, Atlas Sound is the solo moniker of Deerhunter frontman/provocateur Bradford Cox. This is the first vinyl release for the acclaimed solo debut from Bradford Cox. To make all sides of the album complete, there are six new songs added. Rest assured, these are not mere 'leftovers' from the mixing of the album, in fact most of them were recorded after the album had already been completed. Two of the new tunes, 'It Rained' and 'Stained Glass Swan' are of such high quality that they would be considered centerpieces on most albums.

CD Reviews

Richly textured, intensely personal fusion of dream and nois
RadioNDN | Midwestern USA | 03/03/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Richly textured, intensely personal fusion of dream and noise pop from Atlas Sound, a side project of Bradford Cox, otherwise a member of Deerhunter. The intensely personal part you may or may not get at first, if ever without an explanation (available online, fortunately), since some of the lyrics are so personal as to be abstract, but then those lyrics are often lost in the mix, obscured by instrumentation, static or droning sounds, anyway. Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel can be seen as an album akin to David Bowie's Low, where the feeling one gets from the music presented is as important than anything said (or sung) directly. That said, the music here is by turns beautiful and unsettling, and for a record that's so highly experimental for the most part, it's also highly listenable. Worth checking out for fans of adventrous pop. Standout cuts: "Recent Bedroom," "River Card," "Cold As Ice" and "Ativan.""
20 track version a must.
Neil C. Nicholson | Saint Louis, MO | 04/11/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Truly great album. I highly recommend to anyone that they pick up the 20 track cd import or double-vinyl version. The 6 extra tracks are totally essential to the whole of the album. Without em' is like watching a western in full-screen."
