  • Classic homages with a modern twist

    From the first time I listened to “Pain,” I was hooked. The War in Drugs invited you to go on a lyrical and musical journey you cannot forget. Do yourself a favor and give “A Deeper Understanding” a listen.
  • Best Album of 2017

    Moody and melodic. Listening to just one song would be like reading just one chapter of a great novel. Love this band!
  • Very well done

    One of the best albums in a long time. Great start to finish. Two of the strongest songs are in the last three on here. You can tell they took a lot of time getting this one right.
  • Atmospheric yet groovy

    Take the time to let this grow on you if you don't enjoy it for the first few listens, it's a phenomenal work of music. A must have for this year... Best listened to during sunrise or sunsets, on a long drive, by the lake, or just daydreaming...

    I purchase maybe one album a year considering we have so many streaming resources available these days. This by far is the best album of the year. Highly recommended by one of the 'pickiest taste in music' kinda guy. You will not be disappointed. Take care y'all.
  • Best album I've bought all year

    I can't stop playing this album. I've probably purchased 6 or 7 albums from different artists since the release of "A Deeper Understanding" and I keep coming back to this. Gets better with every listen. Very well done.
  • Incredible from start to finish!

    Very few albums nowadays are even worth listening to in whole, much less buying. However, this record is a welcome change. From the very beginning of "Up All Night" to the very end of "You Don't Have to Go" this band has managed to create an extraordinary experience!
  • Amazing Album

    Love this album. Sounds reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen and a voice that reminds me of Bob Dylan. Great guitar riffs and choruses that will get stuck in your head. This is an album you need to listen to.
  • Wow..

    Every song I hear is so beautifully created, I feel like I'm listening to the soundtrack of a movie. Love all of it and his amazing indie/soft rock sound. Def recommend buying!
  • So old, yet so new

    Lost In A Dream got so much rotation in my playlists and road trips over the last two years (along with select cuts from Slave Ambient and Future Weather) yet managed to always feel fresh somehow. It’s reliable road music, for sure. Now this album comes along and just takes it to another level… and incremental step, but a definitive one. This is an album of songs that works from start to finish, just put in on, press play from track 1 till the end and it’s 60+ minutes that seems to go by almost too quickly. The songs are all complete, not truncated for corporate radio format, thanks, Adam. It’s hard to pick a favorite song among the ten tracks. Sometimes I’m in the mood for a slower, more intimate tune, so Knocked Down, Clean Living or You Don’t Have To Go hit the spot. Then I’m hankering for something a bit higher energy, so Nothing To Find, In Chains or Up All Night get my head bobbing as I’m cruising down the highway. And to top it all off, the rock ballads, Pain and The Strangest Thing pull it all together with tasty guitar leads and an old school wall of sound, arena rock delivery. Just the right amount of instrumental harmony, harmonica, synth, sax, piano… this is great music, folks. And like Lost In A Dream, it never gets old with repeated listenings. I’m amazed this band isn’t more well known than they are, but that may not be the case in the future. Just buy it, play it straight through. You don’t have any new music like this in your collection, and you’ll thank me later.
