* ShoutOut: "Montezuma" contains a TitleDrop with the words "Oh man what I used to be / Montezuma to Tripoli". This is a reference to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marines%27_Hymn Marine's Hymn"]], also known as "The Halls of Montezuma".

Added DiffLines:

* {{Grief Song}}: "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song", possibly. Lines suggesting this include "Through the forest, down to your grave/Where the birds wait, and the tall grasses wave" and "Dear Shadow, alive and well, how can the body die?", as if the character is asking the spirit of the deceased why they left.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Lyrical Dissonance}}: The line "Sunlight over me no matter what I do" from "The Shrine/An Argument" may evoke cheerful thoughts, but the way in which Robin sings it suggests raw anguish. It would almost seem that he's [[{{Light is Not Good}} cursing the sun itself.]]

After the second album and an exhausting tour, Pecknold made a quiet announcement in 2013 saying that the Foxes were on an indefinite hiatus. Pecknold started questioning if music was really his passion, wanting to maybe aim for a different career path. Then, in 2016 it was hinted that the Foxes were working on a new album and were back together. It was finally confirmed on Christmas day, with an expected 2017 release date.

* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: Averted. Robin Pecknold has come out in defense of downloading songs off the internet, saying this is how he acquired much of the music that inspired him.

Their music features lots of complex instrumentation and vocal harmony, inviting many comparisons to the BeachBoys and Crosby, Stills, Nash and [[Music/NeilYoung Young]], along with other acts from the [[TheSixties Sixties]] and [[TheSeventies Seventies]]. The general atmosphere often evokes a somewhat Autumnal feel, similar to the likes of Music/NickDrake. Ultimately, however, the Fleet Foxes stand out it the music world as a very original act. The band's skilled musicianship and Pecknold's talent for songwriting have also attracted much praise by music fans and press alike.
