The War on Drugs – An ocean in between the waves

I loved “Lost in the dream” since I first listened to it. For sure one of the best albums this decade. Anyway I wondered if they would be able to deliver live all those songs with the same sound quality as in record, with all its subtlety. Much to my surprise the do it live even better!!

“An ocean in between the waves” is probably the best song on the album and perfectly ilustrates what Pitchfork´s review stated: “songs whose greatness is revealed slowly, where the simplest, most understated chord change can blow a track wide open and elevate it from simply pretty to absolutely devastating”
