Pitchfork Media (Best New Music/8.5) : “This is the sound they’ve reached for since the very beginning, and they’ve never played it as gracefully or confidently as they do here”
NPR All Songs Considered Previews “If Only It Were True” :
New York Times, Live Review (Nate Chinen): “… A terriffic new album. “You & Me” signals more than a return to typographically brisk conjunctive clauses: it’s The Walkmen’s sharpest work since “Bows & Arows”, and in some ways an even better record. And the band shows perspective as well as purpose”.
The Onion A.V Club (Grade A) : “This is an album about growing up. When Leithauser sings, “You keep replaying through the days / That have brought you to this place / What happened to you?” in “The Blue Route,” it hits home like a 30th birthday—and as the standout “In The New Year” points out, realizing “It’s all over anyhow” can be invigorating, a way of readying oneself for the next, far more interesting chapter”
Time Out New York: “Though critically praised as one of those “The” bands bands bringing real rock and roll back to the mean streets of a wildly gentrified New York City”.
Rolling Stone: “…stoked to get an early listen to their killer upcoming disk, You & Me which has an equally awesome banger “In the New Year”.
Spin (4 Stars): “Indie rock luminaries craft an intimate sound with new full-length… The album bordering on retro sees singer Hamilton Leithauser’s vocals in a new light, at times channeling those of Robert Plant, and others, Bob Dylan, especially with “In The New Year”.
