Lost in the Dream is the third studio album by American indie rock band The War on Drugs, released on March 18, 2014 through Secretly Canadian. The recording session, which took place over a two-year period, was characterized by numerous rewrites. The album's lyrical themes were influenced by the loneliness and depression Granduciel faced after he finished touring. Musically, the record was inspired by 1980s rock, as well as Americana, with influences coming from Bruce Springsteen, Spacemen 3 and Neil. The new War On Drugs album is a winning combination of psychedelic rock, krautrock, folk, and Americana-just like the band's. Popular music is mediocre. Lost In The Dream' is the third album by Philadelphia band The War on Drugs, but in many ways, it feels like the first. Around the release of the 2011 breakthrough 'Slave Ambient', Adam Granduciel spent the bulk of two years on the road, touring through progressively larger rock clubs, festival stages and late-night television slots. That essence drives 'Lost In The Dream', a 10-song set produced by Granduciel and longtime engineer Jeff Zeigler. In the past, Granduciel built the core of songs largely by himself. In the past, Adam Granduciel built the core of The War on Drugs songs largely by himself. The War on Drugs 2011 album Slave Ambient saw perpetual unease as a Zen state: bandleader Adam Granduciels ruminations on restlessness read like a veritable prescription for Xanax, but the psychedelia-smeared country-rock enveloping his words was all, like, No worries, dude. The War on Drugs third album, however, presents no easy remedy for his inner turmoil. If the mesmerizing motorik hum of Slave Ambient gave Granduciel an outlet to escape his problems, Lost in the Dream is where he pulls a U to survey the emotional wreckage. When Philadelphia-based purveyors of stripped-down, haunted rock perfection the War on Drugs came on the scene with their 2008 debut, Wagonwheel Blues, their sound perked up the ears of a new generation of soul searchers looking for a soundtrack. Summoning up the patron saints of FM radio rock, the band was constantly framed as an update to the wild-eyed sermons of Dylan and Springsteen or the summer-night abandon that Tom Petty perfected, all filtered through walls of decidedly indie guitar noise. The War on Drugs, the Philadelphia-based project of Adam Granduciel, release the groups third full-length CD, the beautifully sweeping Lost In the Dream, via the Secretly Canadian label. Written and recorded over two-plus years in Philadelphia, North Carolina, New York and New Jersey, following almost two years of nonstop touring in support of 2011's Slave Ambient, Lost In the Dream is the outstanding presentation of Granduciel's progression and growth as a songwriter, performer, and producer. Whether its the fast paced uplift of Red Eyes or the haunting reflection of Lost in A Dream, this album has no filler track. Album 2014 10 Songs. The War on Drugs fourth full-length operates with a bigger, bolder agenda-evident in the clattering electronics and hypnotic production of the nearly nine-minute opener, Under the Pressure. From there, Lost in the Dream unfolds with warm, melancholic rock that combines Granduciels mystical tenor with a blurry haze of vintage synths, chiming guitars, horn accents and reverb-soaked ambience. Uptempo tracks like Red Eyes and An Ocean in Between the Waves juxtapose pulsing, mechanical backbeats with droning synths. Hear the brilliant third album from Philadelphias The War on Drugs, and let us know what you War on Drugs. Released March 18, 2014. Lost in the Dream Tracklist. Under the Pressure Lyrics. For me, Lost in the Dream is about feeling disconnected from everything-your life, your expectations, your romantic relationships-and trying to make something in the face of that feeling, but also about it. A lot of the songs - Under The Pressure, Suffering - I wrote when I wasnt thinking about myself or the bigger picture, but six months later they really formed what the album turned into. Its definitely autobiographical, but its also about trying to put those feelings that I know everyone has into the kind of art I want to make. Lost in the Dream Q&A.

So glad I managed to get this copy after reading the horror stories on the regular black pressing page. It sounds fantastic! I will agree with Killahwhale (review below me), about the "wobbly" guitar. The flanger/reverb effect on the guitar does sound different - i would say more "organic" - than the mp3's I've listened to. I think it's cool though. One thing to note - my purple pressing is definitely purple but when it sits on my black slipmat it just ends up looking black.
This pressing sounds great, I tend to notice the guitar effect sounds a bit different on vinyl then MP3 on most of the tracks. Not sure if its the pressing or not. It sounds a little more "wobbly". Happy with this album as it's amazing.
anybody wind up with two A/B sides? I just bought a used copy from Amoeba SF, and it had two C/D's and no A/B :( I'd hate to have to return/refund this....
great album, great production. Very happy i pre-ordered the purple. This one will be a gem for years to come.
I’m standing around the back hall after the El Ten Eleven show talking with a group of self proclaimed music people, and naturally the conversation turns to War On Drugs, and why shouldn’t it [?], after all Kurt Vile had played this very venue almost a year ago to the day, with someone asking, “What do you think the new War On Drugs album’s gonna sound like?” That was quickly followed by another who nearly laughed remarking, “What won’t it sound like.” Of course my ears perked at these comments and as I turned on my heels, saying “Have any of you actually heard the album?” The hall was quiet until I went on, saying that I had, and that Lost In The Dream was not only quite good but very important, representing not only a smooth but remarkable step forward from Slave Ambient and every bit as intoxicating as Dylan’s step into Blonde On Blonde ... that with each song [and Lost In The Dream was recorded using analog tape] they mixed tape on tape creating a density that’s impossible to push through on one listen, delivering a constructional concept of intelligent hazy smoke filled neo-psychedelic enchantment that is both breathtaking in its beauty and laden with dreamy washes and sonic guitar solos designed to spirit your soul into another dimension ... though making the decision to come back, may be the most difficult part. Lost In The Dream really is a beautiful body of work, one filled with some of the finest most considered guitar structures and insightful lyrics I’ve heard in a very long time, one I can’t get enough of, and having it on purple vinyl only makes things that much more remarkable and enticing. I find it hard to believe that in 2014, there will be an album released to best these efforts, and while I realize that’s a bold statement, I can count myself among the first to be lost in the dream.Post Script: This album only gets better over time, it's like a ride on a magic train. I got to see them live, preforming a nearly 2 hour show in Tucson at the Congress Hotel with less than 500 people in the venue, an event that must be heard to be believed.Lost In The Dream has also been released as a double record gatefold on brilliant translucent purple vinyl, spinning a 45 rpm's. This is a limited edition of 400, finding one is nearly impossible, and mine has been autographed by Adam.Lost In The Dream has been reissued by Vinyl Me Now as a double record gatefold on brilliant splattered lime green vinyl, along with a stunning print of a crow [though what the crow has to do with this album is still alluding me]. By breaking the album down into two discs spinning at 45 rpm's allows the grooves to be thicker, hence achieving better quality and durability … trust me, hearing is believing, though with a limited edition of 2100 copies, it's tough to come by.*At the time of this review and discussion, I had a pre-release copy.Post Script: Caught the band in Tucson [4.8.2014], it was like a magic train ride, and just when you think you've caught your breath, they reach out and take it away from you again ... or perhaps I just lost my voice from signing too loudly. Caught them again in Denver, then in El Paso [creating T-Shirts for the occasion] where they this time had a tour bus, and had a bit more time to hang with the band.Review by Jenell Kesler
Not sure there are 400 copies of the purple if 982 are listed on here as owning it...
Mine just got shipped. Does anybody know how many purple pressings there are?
anyone know how to tell the purple from the green vinyl on a sealed copy? Mine has a purple sticker - so I assume it's the purple - but all other identifiers seem to be identical with the green. THANKS
The purple pressing is limited to 4,000 copies world-wide, according to SoundStageDirect.
Evidently 400. Not sure if that is US numbers or total production.
Only 250 in UK Indie stores is what i heard. Not sure how many pressed in total but i'd say 1000 max.
