Modern Vampires of the City is perhaps the catchiest, most joyous-sounding album to explore death that I have ever heard. The third release from collegiate prep rockers Vampire Weekend shows emotional and musical growth as lead singer Ezra Koening struggles with his own mortality.

Like all Vampire Weekend albums, its tracks vary in listenability. But even the songs with annoying or simply not very catchy melodies (which are a minority) at least make an interesting listen due to another characteristic of all Vampire Weekend albums - their willingness to experiment constantly with new sounds and new styles, often in ways that work brilliantly.

Add a Summary

Vampire Weekend may have finally given up on grad school and settled into a real job. On their third album, the grooves are stronger and more self-assured, the lyrics less pretentious, the harmonies more hymnlike. It's not dumbed down, it's just edited for management. Give the kids a raise.

From the RS review: "For the first time, Vampire Weekend evoke the spirit of their old influence Paul Simon – making music with precise craft and soul that speaks to the heart of city life – without sounding anything like Graceland."
