Fleet Foxes - "Helplessness Blues" (2011)
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Where do I begin with this masterpiece... It was 5 years ago, on the last day of my freshman year of college, I headed to Best Buy after my final exam, and bought the new Fleet Foxes album. They had become one of my favorite bands by that time, and I absolutely teared up as I first played it in my car. "Helplessness Blues" remains to this day as one of my favorite albums of all time, and it never ceases to amaze me. There's very little I would change about it, and I hold it very near and dear to my heart.

austinshaddix If you like Fleet Foxes, folk songs, harmonies, or mandolins, maybe you'll like my cover of White Winter Hymnal! It's on my soundcloud as we speak. // soundcloud.com/austinshaddix // 17h

alternative_album_reviews Helplessness Blues by Fleet Foxes- 2011- Sub-Pop Records- Folk, Indie, Alternative

7.7/10

It's not often that resurrections of music are able to also bring something new and original to the table. Paying homage to sounds of 1960s American folk music as well as sounds of traditional European folk music, Fleet Foxes catapult listeners into a fantasy world out of old literature. It's arguable that the nostalgic folk rock sound was never exactly fashionable, but it seems like the people who enjoyed this record are nostalgic people. The first track I listened to of this album was the growing, arpeggio driven song titled 'The Cascades' which evoked imagery of the ascent up a snowy mountain, where at the top you find peace and a purple sunset over pine trees in the distance. At the root of it, this is a rather dark record. Lyrics are often dealing with inner turmoil, stories of love, mysticism and the questioning of ones own reality, delivered through a lush, wall of strikingly beautiful vocal harmonies that is often the focal point of the music as in songs like 'The Plains/Bitter Dancer' or the albums last track "Grown Ocean". In 2011 you might not have given this album much thought, but it is still my favorite album to play driving through the woods, looking out the window imagining the world as an old time novel. #albumreview #alternative #folk #indie #album #fleetfoxes #robinpecknold #helplessnessblues #record #music

sprinklethekindness I haven't been feeling that great so I decided to turn on some music and the first song that came on was Fleet Foxes song Blue Ridge Mountains. Surprisingly we are taking our first family road trip through North Carolina and Tennessee near the Blue Ridge Mountains in T-minus one month 😀 Music IS healing and so are thoughts of mountains 🏔
