With so much happening in and around Darker My Love, it’s no surprise that their third album, Alive as You Are, marks a stylistic shift, finding them moving away from their dark and murky sound to lighter, more psych-folk-oriented territories. Given the change to the band's sound, it feels like more than a coincidence that Granelli was replaced by Brian Jonestown Massacre drummer Dan Allaire. More Beatles/Dylan than My Bloody Valentine, Alive as You Are is an album that’s more about being listened to than just felt

Studio album by Darker My Love. Alive As You Are appears in the following lists: 2010 albums. 10 lists, 2,993 members. Darker My Love albums.
On their third full-length album, Alive As You Are, the members of Darker My Love drop the whole neo-shoegaze, Jesus And Mary Chain worship of their first two albums and instead engage in a sampling of different '60s sounds. For those who heard their contribution to the recent 13th Floor Elevators tribute album, The Psychedelic Sounds Of The Sonic Cathedral, the metamorphosis isn't all that surprising. It comes off like a giant tip of the hat to the pioneering psych acts that allowed the bands that marked their earlier output to exist.
