The War on Drugs, whose tour has them in NYC for three sold-out shows this month, will release their new album Lost in the Dream next week (3/18) via Secretly Canadian, but you can now hear it in full ahead of its release. Listen, via The Guardian, below. And if that stream isn't working at the moment you can listen over at NPR too.

An Ocean Between the Waves is the best guitar jam since Nothing Ever Happened

I love the music, and the sound of this album is great. I only wish I could enjoy Vile's Petty-esque voice, which I find irritating.

I agree with the Deerhunter comparison above.

"not available for streaming in your location" - so UK only?

Yeah this is Adam, not Kurt.

This is not only the best album of the year, but possibly of the decade.

Obviously there's the kurt vile historical/evolutionary connection, and the vocals are very similar, but this is distinctly different from kurt's recent work

So fucking good

WTF, you idiots. Kurt hasn't been in the band since the first album. The last 3 albums are all Adam, its his band.

This album is a step up from Slave Ambient and is potentially Adam's master work.

Kurt Vile's music has gotten worse and worse while this band only gets better.

Pardon the positivity on this comment board, but this album fucking rules. These guys could be the best American rock band around right now.

best Dire Straits record since "Brothers in Arms"

The War on Drugs = Springsteen x (Knopfler + Petty) / (Sonic Youth x MBV)

"Kurt Vile's music has gotten worse and worse while this band only gets better."

translation: Kurt Vile gets more popular and I want more indie cred.

actually this album has super strong don henley 80s solo vibes on it...and its AWESOME.

Yes, this is really, really good. Best album of the year, so far

Have you listened to his newest album? The most dull thing he's ever done by far. Fuck off.

i've never seen so many serious comments on a BV thread.

This album is such a game changer even the anonymous trolls are showing respect.

@3:48 KV's newest album is the BEST thing he's done.

I lasted through the first 30 seconds of the first track, skipped to the second one and called it quits afterwards. This music sucks, are you guys "lost in a dream"?

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2014 4:24 PM

WOD > Radiohead, by a lot

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2014 4:30 PM

Game changer? It's a good record, but when listening to it its nearly impossible to not start playing "spot the influence."

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2014 4:41 PM

Pretty much the same as Slave Ambient...no growth.

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2014 5:29 PM

I can't tell if the haters are just bad trolls or if they are really that clueless

5:29 just described Radiohead circa 2001 - present

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2014 5:43 PM

This is the best album I've heard in years. Their first two albums were great, but this is a classic

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2014 6:01 PM

Kurt Vile looks the same but sounds kinda weird on this one.

Posted by Anonymous | March 10, 2014 6:03 PM

@5:43

I kinda wondered about that when I listened. I LIKED what I heard but I did think about putting Slave Ambient on afterwards to compare.

Posted by Anonymouse | March 10, 2014 6:07 PM

best brooklynvegan thread I've seen. Brings a tear to my eye :') this album is glorious.

I've only ripped through a couple of decks tonight and I still can't figure out what half of you fuckers are talking about. It's like everyone's brains are on stutter.
