  1. I loved reading robins explanation of the song and what it means to his and skylers ups and downs in their friendship after HB and relating skylers birthday as a time when maybe things were better but one thing I love about music is how lyrics to any song no matter the meaning to the songwriter it can take on a life of its own in other peoples own mind and life for me I lost my grandfather on may 3rd 2001 and then just a month ago lost my grandmother his wife also on the third and then to hear this coming out now means something g else to me and that's the real beauty

  2. This entire album will always be me graduating high school, and moving onto college. (This year, 2017) and it all feels so surreal. On my phone this album is first then the self titled album, then helplessness blues. I listen everyday religiously.

  3. If you're going to listen to somthing that sounds old and elegant, and is culturally irrelevant, listen to Bach instead. Start with Art of Fugue or Well Tempered Clavier. It's better for you. This is McDonald's for your mind. No hate…

  4. As an enormous Helplessness Blues fan, I wasn't impressed at first with this song (as well as the album). However, this song gets better and better everytime you listen to it. And now, I almost want to say that The Third of May is THE BEST FLEET FOXES SONG EVER (the Third of May part, not Odaigahara). I know that is quite a statement but you cannot deny the power of 3:475:40. If you can't agree with me that this song might be the best FF song ever, at least agree that two minutes is the best two minutes of FF ever.

    It's too bad they don't just end the song at 5:40. I feel like they did this way too much with the new album (where they let the fat hang instead of trimming it out). This album would be a lot better if it was eight to ten minutes shorter. And also, as I have argued in the comments section of the full album video, I know that they are capable of writing a catchy, beautiful, sky-shattering three minute hit (I mean they had several on Helplessness Blues). But it feels like they thought in order to be taken seriously, every one of their songs had to be deep and complex and hard to process at first. I understand wanting to deepen your music and evolve from your previous state (that's what great bands do) but that doesn't mean you can't give us a couple tastes of what made you so great to begin with.

    The good thing about the album being so deep and layered is that you will discover something new everytime you listen to it. And you might find yourself liking a song you never thought you would like or finding yourself going "wow, that part is amazing" (as I did on about the fourth or fifth listen with the 3:475:40 section). This is a great song (like I said possibly their best), and a great album (not as great as Helplessness of course but not many albums are going to be), and a great band (definitely in my top 10). Long live THE FLEETEST OF FOXES!

  5. This song is so beautiful and the highlight of this beauty for me is definitely the moments in when the below lyrics are sung…can I be light and free?
    If I lead you through the fury will you call to me?
    And is all that I might owe you carved on ivory?…..
    Life unfolds in pools of gold
    I am only owed this shape if I make a line to hold
    To be held within one's self is deathlike, oh I know…
    Crack up is also a great album. …and again for me this segment I mention is definitely the musical orgasm within their best album to date in my opinion

  6. I can't call myself a Fleet Foxes fan but I do like some of the songs on this album. The music is amazing especially here when the Mellotron and Flute double up. Sounds like a throwback to Moody Blues in the 60's. The vocals are ok i guess.. they are too neutral for my liking. Sounds like every other Indie bands vocals… or maybe they were stealing from Fleet Foxes… who knows.
