Vampire Weekend: Contra

After not caring too much about the Oxford Comma (which is not what I truly believe in at all), I am again falling in love with Vampire Weekend all over again. I’m interested in reading reviews on the album – Pitchfork’s Mike Powell was on the job early with his 9-paragraph rave. Something about orchestral confetti and multicultural sound mashes. It almost feels like Powell is writing for the sake of writing – not saying I don’t like his words, they are fancy indeed; I guess I want more from the review. I want a) some commentary on the lyrics, b) analysis of the music, c) an obvious opinion on whether the writer likes it or not, and d) a sentence on what the album is – where does it fit?
