Acclaim for You & Me:

Pitchfork : "This is the sound they've reached for since the very beginning,
and they've never played it as gracefully or confidently as they do here"

New York Times, Live Review (Nate Chinen): "... A terriffic new album. You &
Me signals more than a return to typographically brisk conjunctive clauses:
it's The Walkmen's sharpest work since "Bows & Arows", and in some ways an
even better record. And the band shows perspective as well as purpose".
