A Deeper Understanding is his most layered and meticulous album, a twilight world in which to lose yourself. If so many of Springsteen’s songs were about machines, War on Drugs’ music is a machine. Granduciel’s work finds its meaning in the totality of its sound, in how writing and arranging and perfecting every detail in the studio is part of building music that carries you with it.

A Deeper Understanding is the fourth studio album from The War on Drugs. It was released on Aug. 25, 2017. The album won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album at the 2017 Grammys held on Jan. 28, 2018. A Deeper Understanding Q&A.

The cover of the fourth War on Drugs album is a red herring. Alone in a windowless room, songwriter Adam Granduciel looks up from his keyboard, apparently annoyed by an intruding photographer. A raft of obscure synths has given A Deeper Understanding a glitzy, gilded aura that makes Granduciel’s trademark lyrical tussle between comfort and the possibility of change more pronounced.

Throughout A Deeper Understanding, The War On Drugs develop their strengths, taking what they do best and airing it out. A master class in widening scope, the record finds the band unafraid to push their sound in a way that feels bigger than what any of their contemporaries are doing. The band may not ever be gigantic, as 11-minute singles aren’t that marketable, but they’ve made a record that sounds huge

The War on Drugs‘ new album, A Deeper Understanding, is being hailed as one of the best rock LPs of the year. It’s a surprise hit for the band, which spent years as indie-rock heroes before signing with Atlantic in 2015. The guitarist is a big fan of 1986’s EVOL, the album that merged Sonic Youth’s arty tendencies with more commercial melodies.

A Deeper Understanding suffers a bit just in that The War on Drugs are no longer new on the scene-the album is more a distillation of the formula they toyed with on previous albums. It's not as new anymore, but it sure sounds great.
