Kasaysayan[baguhin | baguhin ang batayan]

Matapos ang kanilang ikatlong studio album, Fits, White Denim ay gumawa ng ilang mga pagbabago: pinalawak nila mula sa isang power trio hanggang sa isang apat na piraso, pagdaragdag ng pangalawang gitarista na si Austin Jenkins at ginamit upang magamit ang mas sopistikadong studio. "First and foremost the gear we were using, it kind of brought out different performances. Before we were in a trailer, using a lot of lo-fi equipment to try to stretch it out, and with this one we played in a really nice studio and had access to things we hadn’t before, and we were kind of hearing everything much more clearly and it got different performances out of us," Sinabi ni James Petralli sa isang panayam.[1] Ang bagong pamamaraan na ito, ayon sa Allmusic, ay nagresulta sa isang gawa na minarkahan ni "warmer, acoustic spirit and a more expansive, swirly psychedelic style".

Sa pagsasalita ng isang bagong dating, kinilala ni James Petralli si Jenkins na mayroong "brought a lightness and sense of humor back to the group". "I think for a short while we were running the risk of losing that, which is crazy because fun and laughter have always been such an essential part of our collaboration," idinagdag ng singer/gitarista. Itinapon niya ang anumang mga pagdududa tungkol sa 'studio experience' na maaaring magkaroon ng anumang nakapipinsalang epekto sa isang kolektibong psyche ng isang banda: "I don't feel like any of the 'soul' was lost. The quality of the equipment and environment should have an impact on the music, and it certainly did on this record".[2]

Kritikal na pagtanggap[baguhin | baguhin ang batayan]

Sa paglaya nito, natanggap ng D ang kritikal na pag-akit mula sa mga kritiko ng musika. Aggregating website AnyDecentMusic? ulat ng isang marka ng 7.7 batay sa 22 propesyonal na mga pagsusuri.[3]

Tinatawag ito ng AllMusic "laboriously constructed" album "a masterpiece". Ang bagong halaga ng produksyon (at paminsan-minsang plauta solo o nangangarap na pag-aayos ng string) "nothing to water down the band's muscular interplay," ayon kay Jason Lymangrover. Ang isang tagasuri ay tumatawag sa bassist na si Steve Terebecki at drummer na si Josh Block "one of the most badass rhythm sections this side of Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding", at pinupuri ang mga gitarista na sina Jenkins at James Petralli dahil sa paglalaro sa isa't isa ng perpektong, "intertwining jazzy guitar noodling, prog scales, and rock riffs." "Everything is tightly structured, and melodies are of the highest importance, especially in the album's explosive single 'Drug,' which blends a raw groove and Southern Americana slack along with Summer of Love lyrics," nagsusulat ang kritiko.

Ayon sa Rolling Stone, ang White Denim ay "...like a jam band that refuses to be boring", paghahalo nang banayad "psychedelia, hardblues, boogie, prog rock and fusion riffs like inspired kids weaned on 64GB iPods and 64-ounce Slurpees" sa paraang iyon "often recalls late-Sixties Grateful Dead, when their songs still had garage-rock drive but were exploding every which way." "The freakouts are mathematically calibrated, come with joyous hooks, and can coalesce into something conventionally heroic," tala ng Uncut Magazine.[3] Ang album ay inilarawan bilang "White Denim's most thrillingly off-kilter record to date" and "another joyous rampage through rock's dusty attic" sa pamamagitan ng Mojo at Q kritiko, ayon sa pagkakabanggit.[3]

Inilagay ni Uncut ang album sa numero 4 sa listahan nito "Top 50 albums of 2011",[4] habang ang Mojo, NME, at Rolling Stone ay nagraranggo sa 6, 37, at 46, ayon sa pagkakabanggit.[5][6][7] Ang album na ito ay naitala ang # 16 sa tuktok na tsart ng mga heatseekers. Kasama rin ang album sa libro 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.[8]
