Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.82) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A lower-dosage Animal Collective, the Foxes stuff their free-form songs with rich, swirling melodies; bellowing clouds of organs...and bells and assorted stringed instruments..."

Rolling Stone (p.90) - Ranked #11 in Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums Of 2008 -- "[T]he prettiest album of the year, and the warmest."

Spin (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "FLEET FOXES is warm and cathartic, with all the hopefulness of a balmy summer night."

Spin (p.52) - Ranked #5 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "Fleet Foxes distinguish themselves from the vintage-vinyl crowd by infusing their rootsy retro-pop moves with a sense of mystery..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.71) - "'Ragged Wood' moseys in on breezy harmonies, transforming the folk rock to beach pop in the pick of a high, tensile guitar string." -- Grade: A

Magnet (p.102) - "'Ragged Wood' begins with a shuffling twang, but before settling too deeply into the standard top-down AMericana, the song downshifts into a loose, lovesick midsection whose eventual peak feels as natural as it does surprising."

Q (Magazine) (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he quintet win solely on the strength of their complex but unaffectedly lovely songs....A pure pleasure."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.73) - Ranked #1 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "A musical tonic of our times; a reminder of what humanity is capable of."

Blender (Magazine) (p.72) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Fleet Foxes go for a somber, bombed-out hippy vibe, with acoustic guitars and five-part harmonies filling 'White Winter Hymns' and 'Blue Ridge Mountains.'"

Paste (magazine) (p.65) - "[W]hat we take away from the album is less a collection of specific moments and more of a feeling. It's like watching the sun rise over distant mountaintops, over and over, familiar and captivating all at once."

Clash (magazine) (p.126) - "From the a capella opening to 'White Winter Hymnal' and the mature folk sensibility of 'Tiger Mountain Peasant Song,' this album heralds the arrival of an interesting, seductive and confidently singular sound."

Clash (magazine) (p.64) - Ranked #25 in Clash's "The 40 Best Albums of 2008" -- "Blending the sweetness and innocence of '60s AM radio gems and Californian harmonies with shimmering, wide-open guitars, Fleet Foxes are a truly special band..."

Fleet foxes 2008 will exceed your expectations.
its like a journey with the beach boys together with Simon and Garfunkel but with refreshing new lyrics.it will shiver you spine and energize you at the same time.
by the time you get to "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" you think you've had it all until you reach the end "Oliver James".
its an album that will inspire you on many levels it created intense excitement for 2008 and will stay with you forever.

This album is one of the best i have ever heard. The harmonies, lyrics & music is sublime, amazing, stupendous & more. Truly a hidden gem. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to hear pure music.

An absolutely great, folk/chilled album from fleet foxes. The EP (sun giant) is just as good. It's very alternative rock, very folk, and has elements of classical here and there. It's a really chilled out and relaxed album I have to say, and recommend to fans of Radiohead, and portishead.
