Album Review: The War On Drugs - A Deeper Understanding

It is the expert production that Adam Granduciel has managed to cultivate throughout A Deeper Understanding that takes it above just another rock album and beyond just another album full of hope and nostalgia. With over half a dozen different instruments being played at any time on any song, it is thoroughly impressive how clean and clear the music and its message comes through. With this behemoth-like sound at his back, Granduciel’s lyrics and emotions are buoyed to a level of infiniteness.

- I had the pleasure of reviewing A Deeper Understanding, the fourth great album from The War On Drugs, for The 405.
