    Disappointing. Another amazing band that has a great thing going and then.....poof, changing to appeal to the masses with a pop sound. Bring back the folk and then I’ll be back. Because I’m out with this junk.

    Different sound and a poor attempt.. If you had told me this was a different band I would have believed you. They went pop and did a sound that a lot of indie bands are already doing much better. Here is to hoping we see a return to the folk roots, but I have to imagine that is not going to happen.

    Why the dramatic change up?. It’s kind of sad. Why don’t bands stay the course after making a killer album? Take Chromeo for example. Year after year they come out with killer albums, staying in their lane..... creating songs that could very well be on the same massive album. It is what fans want. OMAM has now followed the path of Mumford&Sons and Arcade Fire..... switching from a great Organic sound that is unique, to a mainstream approach that is too poppy and electronic. This album is a mediocrity.

    Eh. This album is pretty generic. Alligator was a hype inducer to an underwhelming album, so was Wild Roses. I pretty much knew OMAM would take somewhat of a turn toward more modern and poppy, but this is ridiculous. Alligator, Wild Roses, Róróró, Stuck in Gravity are the only good tracks in my opinion. The rest are generic pop hot garbage that is ruining the music industry. C'mon OMAM, y'all know better.

    Amazing Album.....at 1st Disappointed. At first I thought this album was disappointing and a turn to pop. But, I can’t stop listening to it a month and a half later. It is a departure from their previous two albums, but it is such an amazing collection of songs. I listen to it much more than I did “Beneath the Skin”. Sorry for my original harsh review OMAM...I felt like I owed you a new one!

    Hot Garbage. Many bands and artists have an album where they stray so far from what made them great. This is that album. The HEAVY usage of 80’s pop and effects kills any folkish style that they had in previous albums. His vocals are drowned out and not as apparent. In contrast, her vocals did reach a new level. That is the only positive I have. Maybe they are a band wagon group making music for whatever genre is popular. I hated every song on this and will not try it again.

    Worst fears came true.. They were so good. But this is typical basic pop. Truly disappointed that they went for the $$$ and traded in their good music for this.

    Brilliant! The more you listen, the better it gets.. Such a beautiful and diverse album. The stand out songs for me are Rororo, Under a Dome and Sleepwalker. There’s great song writing on this album. The first listen, I thought it was good. The second and third, Amazing. Now I can’t stop listening.

    Another fantastic album!. Another great album by OMAM. It has a different feel than the other two albums, but it still has the elements of their sound that I love. There is not a single song I don’t like, and that’s a high bar. If you like their previous two albums, you’ll like this one too.
  • Trey800

    This album soars. What an impressive expansion of OMAM’s sonic landscape! There are some pretty cool departures from what we might expect, but this album fits perfectly with the progression from My Head... to Skin and through FEVER DREAM. Alligator is a monster of an opener. Róróró; Vulture, Vulture; Wild Roses; Sleepwalker; and Under a Dome are other highlights. I simply can’t stop listening to these songs. This album transports me... “Sleepwalking in Mexico, the lights are out.”

    Not their best to me. I don’t hate it and will always love this band . This album is a bit poppy , but that not a bad thing overall . I just miss vibe of last two albums . What I hated most was their wasn’t one song that had the singing team work of both singers as the first album did. I wanted that . Ragnar isn’t heard much in this album at all

    Something is different is good. I, like most, wasn’t thrilled with this album upon first listen. I loved alligator and wild roses. Then when I listened in it’s entirety, “Wars” was the only song that I was in love with. However, when listening to the lyrics and listening a few times I absolutely love this album. I have tickets to see them in NY and can’t wait. A lot of people who aren’t super fans say “all of their stuff sounds the same” well, now it doesn’t. Not every track is a standout, but as a whole I appreciate their boldness in attempting something different.

    What happened. So many great alternative bands are turning to this poppy, auto tuned crap. Why not stick to what made people start listening to you in the first place. Ugh. Didn't buy one song off this album and I've been listening to them for years.

    New Sound. It made my year to see OMaM has a new album! It’s a lot more radio-friendly than the band’s previous work, but it’s still really good. I approve of experimenting with new sounds while remaining authentic - this is a summer music highlight!

    Ehh. Not a horrible album. They definitely did a sharp turn to the pop side instead of the folk. Personally I liked the folk better.

    Overall disapointing - Generic. As a lot of people have said, the album just doesn't sound like OMAM's previous 2 albums. While change isn't a bad thing, here is just doesn't work for me. They trade folk sound to pop/synth sound. Several of the tracks sound like they came from 1985, which is not what I was hoping for. It's not all bad though, there are some good tracks, the vocals on "Wild Roses" soar. But "Wars" is pure pop, honestly I wonder if they used a drum machine for it. Going to listen to it on repeat to see if it grows on me, but overall it just feels generic.

    Sorry OMAM but disappointed!. We are huge fans of the group and tell people that their live performance was one of our all time favorite concerts and we listen to their previous albums constantly even after four years. And I understand not wanting to stay the same, but I feel like too much of this album is really pretty bland pop. The great sound that made me want to go fly away on their tunes just isn't there much. After four years of waiting it's not there for me. Sorry OMAM but we still love ya.

    What happened?. I get trying to be different and keep evolving as a band but why move so far away from your original sound. Yes, if you listen to the lyrics it can seem like their first two albums but I’m not reading poetry, I’m listening to music. But most bands eventually evolve for better or worse. I hope this album gives them success, though. They are very talented. I’ll sit this one out and hope for something I’ll dig on the next album. 🖤

    Showed the song to my friend, this is what she had to say. After my friend listened to it at my request she texted me and said this. “I just listened to Alligator. I think the two albums, ‘My Head Is An Animal’ and ‘Beneath The Skin’ are better. ‘Alligator’ just doesn’t seem to match their image and energy in my opinion. Even if they want to develop their music further, they should at least build it around their original energy image, rather than going ‘full-blast Mumford and Sons’ on us. I’m not trying to flame them or insult them, but I prefer to stick to those other two albums, because to me, those albums have a ‘horror-turned-fantasy’ kind of feel. It’s like they turned the idea of terrifying monsters and turned it into a beautiful musical story about wonder-filled, misunderstood creatures and how they metaphorically relate to things in real life. As for ‘Alligator’, it’s not a bad song, but I couldn’t make heads or tails of its purpose, and it didn’t seem very meaningful to me.” She’s right. The energy isn’t the same and isn’t as beautiful as it was in the previous albums. The songs are decent, but the energy is the same as any other alternative song. I may even go so far as to say it sounds like pop. This style OMAM has adopted is the kind of energy that the rest of the world has, music that is a dime a dozen. It’s the kind of music that blends into the background and has a worldly feel. Whatever they’ve done differently has messed it all up. It’s not the kind of music I would listen to in order to escape the world into a beautiful place, but music I would play as background noise. They are incredibly talented people, but in an effort to fit in with the world and make their music sound conventional, they have destroyed what I and so many others love about their music.

    a new sound for a new decade. it’s a new sound from before... no two albums will sound the same. all of their albums are wonderfully beautiful in their own ways, and Fever Dream is no exception. great job OMAM, thank you for this amazing album👏💞

    Disappointing. It’s one thing for a group to evolve its sound and style. It’s another to abandon it altogether. I am still to this day captivated by the unique sounds and artistic bent of the first two albums. What we have here, with Fever Dream, is a collection of songs which momentarily have hope only to break into choruses and refrains which sound straight out of mainstream top 40 pop music. Were it not for the voices I would never guess this is Of Monsters and Men. Nonetheless, if the music were actually compelling, that would be of little concern. But this music, to me, lacks the spirit, the soul, the emotion, and the mystical Icelandic sound and storytelling that drew to me this group in the first place. Gone are the ringing guitar chords, foot tapping melodies, and introspective vocals, replaced by an auto tuned and, in my opinion, uninspiring and average soundscape. I do like the track”Waiting for the Snow”, which invokes a bit of the old magic, but by and large, not one other track stood out. Each song sounds interchangeable. On the album Beneath the Skin, they released a bonus track that was a bit “harder” than most their songs- Winter Sound. I LOVED that track and if the group were to have evolved their sound in direction, I would have followed. Fever Dream, sadly, sounds too much like the music my teenage nieces listen to. Another reviewer said that if you love OMAM, you’ll love this. At the risk of invoking the wrath of true believers who think that you’re not a “real fan” if you don’t like every single thing produced by an artist, I heartily disagree. This is nothing like their previous work. Some will love it. I do not.

    Takes a few listens. Alright, I'm a HUGE OMAM fan since the very beginning. At first listen of Fever Dream, I was pretty disappointed at the new, pop synth sound. Not the OMAM I knew to love, the bold instruments, stomp and holler beats, and indie moody vibe. After a few listens yesterday and today, the songs are definitely growing on me. You can still hear the OMAM vibe woven in each song. "Waiting for the Snow" is the song most like their older songs. Yet bands grow and experiment, as I have seen happen many times with Mumford and Sons and The Head and the Heart's 3rd and 4th albums. Is it my favorite OMAM album? No. But I still hear their sound and I know the songs will continue to grow on me with each listen. Still a fan, and to others - give it some time to grow on you.

    Unique sound. OMAM have evolved, as they have on every album... Been hooked since the first. Combination of slow/heartfelt beats to upbeat/soul punching riffs and the voices of Nanna and Ragnor make this something you just don’t hear everyday. And something you want more of the next day. Love it. Congrats on another fine work of art!

    Of Monsters and Men. While this album isn’t bad it is not what it could have been. Like so many bands, including the likes of Coldplay and Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men have traded their drums and guitars for synths and more synths. Their newest project is still worth listening to but it lacks the charm and wonder that was present throughout their previous two records.

I may even go so far as to say it sounds like pop. This style OMAM has adopted is the kind of energy that the rest of the world has, music that is a dime a dozen. It’s the kind of music that blends into the background and has a worldly feel. Whatever they’ve done differently has messed it all up. It’s not the kind of music I would listen to in order to escape the world into a beautiful place, but music I would play as background noise. They are incredibly talented people, but in an effort to fit in with the world and make their music sound conventional, they have destroyed what I and so many others love about their music.

    a new sound for a new decade. it’s a new sound from before... no two albums will sound the same. all of their albums are wonderfully beautiful in their own ways, and Fever Dream is no exception. great job OMAM, thank you for this amazing album👏💞

    Disappointing. It’s one thing for a group to evolve its sound and style. It’s another to abandon it altogether. I am still to this day captivated by the unique sounds and artistic bent of the first two albums. What we have here, with Fever Dream, is a collection of songs which momentarily have hope only to break into choruses and refrains which sound straight out of mainstream top 40 pop music. Were it not for the voices I would never guess this is Of Monsters and Men. Nonetheless, if the music were actually compelling, that would be of little concern. But this music, to me, lacks the spirit, the soul, the emotion, and the mystical Icelandic sound and storytelling that drew to me this group in the first place. Gone are the ringing guitar chords, foot tapping melodies, and introspective vocals, replaced by an auto tuned and, in my opinion, uninspiring and average soundscape. I do like the track”Waiting for the Snow”, which invokes a bit of the old magic, but by and large, not one other track stood out. Each song sounds interchangeable. On the album Beneath the Skin, they released a bonus track that was a bit “harder” than most their songs- Winter Sound. I LOVED that track and if the group were to have evolved their sound in direction, I would have followed. Fever Dream, sadly, sounds too much like the music my teenage nieces listen to. Another reviewer said that if you love OMAM, you’ll love this. At the risk of invoking the wrath of true believers who think that you’re not a “real fan” if you don’t like every single thing produced by an artist, I heartily disagree. This is nothing like their previous work. Some will love it. I do not.

    Takes a few listens. Alright, I'm a HUGE OMAM fan since the very beginning. At first listen of Fever Dream, I was pretty disappointed at the new, pop synth sound. Not the OMAM I knew to love, the bold instruments, stomp and holler beats, and indie moody vibe. After a few listens yesterday and today, the songs are definitely growing on me. You can still hear the OMAM vibe woven in each song. "Waiting for the Snow" is the song most like their older songs. Yet bands grow and experiment, as I have seen happen many times with Mumford and Sons and The Head and the Heart's 3rd and 4th albums. Is it my favorite OMAM album? No. But I still hear their sound and I know the songs will continue to grow on me with each listen. Still a fan, and to others - give it some time to grow on you.

    Unique sound. OMAM have evolved, as they have on every album... Been hooked since the first. Combination of slow/heartfelt beats to upbeat/soul punching riffs and the voices of Nanna and Ragnor make this something you just don’t hear everyday. And something you want more of the next day. Love it. Congrats on another fine work of art!

    Of Monsters and Men. While this album isn’t bad it is not what it could have been. Like so many bands, including the likes of Coldplay and Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men have traded their drums and guitars for synths and more synths. Their newest project is still worth listening to but it lacks the charm and wonder that was present throughout their previous two records.
