Thee Oh Sees — Castlemania

Reviewed by yewknee

I am told this is Thee Oh Sees most accessible album; a good sign for me given that I've not really listened to much of them before. I have a good feeling that the higher production values and instrumentation on this one is a bit of a divergence from their prior works, so it may not sit well with the longtime fans, but, assuming one can move beyond that, there's a nice energy throughout and a definite weirdness. Not my favorite thing I heard all year, but glad I heard it.
