Louder Than War loves the Dream Syndicate‘s How Did I Find Myself Here?, dubbing the band’s first LP in 30 years “essential” and saying the reinvigorated group has released the “best work of their career.” Gushes the site, “This is a stunning album… a rockin’, transcendental album. An album where every song is different to the last yet has a cohesion which means you have to listen to the whole thing in one sitting. It goes from sounding like prime Michael Stipe, to Crazy Horse playing Krautrock, to star-gazing dream-pop, to Doors-y bluesy roadkill rock’n’roll… to poetry’n’drone and back again. The Dream Syndicate sound like a brand new band who can’t quite believe how good they are… Their early material is a lifetime away, and I’m sure it was good, but there’s just no need to look back.”
