A Deeper Understanding is the fourth studio album by American indie rock band The War on Drugs. It was released on August 25, 2017, through Atlantic Records. The album was mixed by engineer Shawn Everett. The album won Best Rock Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. A Deeper Understanding received acclaim from music critics.

On A Deeper Understanding, his first album for Atlantic, the synths get an extra twinkle, the bass-led builds get another octave of rumble, and some songs have a dozen instruments on them where they once might have had seven or eight. Holding On is packed with piano and celeste and a chugging acoustic, but the entire song is wrapped around the heavenly slide guitar from Anthony LaMarca and Meg Duffy, which uncurls like a plume of smoke and steals the song like a Robert Fripp solo. So yes, Springsteen, Dylan, Tom Petty, and Neil Young all made songs between 1983 and 1988 that sounded something like the War on Drugs, but they often had these booming gated drums, a technique Granduciel mostly avoids. Instead, he favors a steady, muted pulse evocative of krautrock’s motorik groove.

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.

Alternative rock darlings The War on Drugs return with their highly-anticipated fourth studio album, A Deeper Understanding. Overall, it’s respectable. In 2014, The War on Drugs had critics and fans alike going gaga. Why? They released their third album, Lost in the Dream, to universal acclaim. Yes, Lost in the Dream topped year-end critics lists everywhere. Because of the hype behind album number three, album number four, A Deeper Understanding, arrives chocked-full of hype and high expectations. Does it live up to them? Overall, it’s highly respectable, but imperfect.

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. They contrast beautifully with his weathered voice, no longer the Philly snarl of 2011’s Slave Ambient, but a longing, disembodied presence that distils this in-between state: All this living and no life, he sighs on Clean Living.

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. 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.

But clearly The War On Drugs’ main man is used to the state of mind that typically accompanies the wee hours, which is not so surprising given his reputation for painstaking perfectionism. Plus there’s all the sunshine he encountered after decamping to Los Angeles to record most of A Deeper Understanding, even if Granduciel recently admitted his reference points for quintessential LA records are Warren Zevon and Tonight’s The Night rather than anything that sounds like it has a great tan. So even though much of the album may guide us through more long, dark nights of the soul, there’s a new brightness at the edges here, and more warmth, too.
