  1. Of the two albums, Microcastle is probably the stronger, but at this price, getting the pair is a no brainer. If you like this, then the EP Rainwater Cassette Exchange will also appeal.

Atlas Sound's Logos (4AD, ), compared with the first Atlas Sound album, is a more focused and narrower work, The tender aerial lullaby with digital aquatic noises of The Light That Failed and the eight-minute whirling psychedelic dance of Quick.
  7. The group began with the ambition of fusing the lulling hypnotic states induced by ambient and minimalist music with the klang and propulsion of garage rock. The band has weathered chaotic line-up changes and the death of a member. Cryptograms was the second full-length offering from Deerhunter, and their first for Kranky. The album took almost.
  8. [Microcastle was also released with Weird Era Continued, an album of bonus songs that plays like Microcastle's mirror twin: tracks like "Vox Celeste" and "VHS Dream" put the angular pop first and experimental haze second. Taken as a whole, Microcastle/Weird Era Continued is an even richer, more ambitious, and more exciting listen than either.
