Some of the early criticisms say this album is more predictable, "boring", or formulaic than their previous. In a way, that's definitely true. If Tourist History was their college album, this is their "first job" album. This band is growing up. It's like they did a bunch of juvenile rocking out and experimentation on TH (that is not a negative; I love TH), settled on a flavor they liked most, and went in that direction.

Beacon is eminently enjoyable, solidly upbeat throughout, maybe a bit airier than their last (especially towards the end of the album). It is also more musical; there is greater emphasis on musicianship / instruments, and the vocals are somehow less prominent, complimenting and meshing with the music rather than stealing the show as the centerpiece.

For my part, I loved every song on this album on the first play, and it just keeps getting better. If Tourist History was an album that really resonated with you through its kidlike enthusiasm, it might be worth listening to the samples here and weighing your purchase. But if you felt like TH was a glimpse at a band with exciting potential as they matured, grab this straightaway.
