This is maybe the best indie rock album of the year. God Molly Rankin writes some incredibly catchy hooks and melodies, and I love the hell out of her voice. 10 songs is perfect, 33 minutes, doesn't wear out its welcome, every track is great, guitar tones on point, I am a fan of her lyricism, at times very blunt, but always using great sounding words that roll of the tongue in her phrasing. I mean I wish there was an album like Puberty 2 or Teens of Denial from this year that could be this ... read more

Man this is an album I wish would get a bit more attention. I'll admit that I've always been a big fan of Rostam's production work, especially in Vampire Weekend, and I do really like his singing voice as well, the way it always sounds like he's smiling. But aside from my bias, I think the record's production is wonderful and speaks for itself, I think the album has lots of repeatibility, some great melodies (especially on Bike Dream, Gwan and Rudy), and while Rostam's not as interesting or ... read more

Great lyrics, great production, and SZAs vocal delivery, cadence and flow are just so addicting and nice, god i just really ended up loving this album. Best R&B album of the year, lots of textures, super sexual, big fan.

Is this the worst album of the year? Probably! Everything is boring. Nothing is catchy. Nothing is fun or exciting. Half the vocals are awkward. All the instrumentals are repetetive and half-baked. All the interludes suck. "We Got The Power"? Did anyone actually listen to that before the record came out? Did someone think "Momentz" was a good song? Did someone think "Sex Murder Party" was a good song? WTF Happened here?

Classic 2/10 thug lyrics about fucking, but really great vocal performances and singing (as usual) and some actually really nice folksy, dark r&b songs. Cohesive project, a few snoozers but overall a pleasant enough listen and another showcase for thug's trademark vocals.

I reviewed in college for the Rice Thresher and now write for the Berkeley B Side. Indie rocker at heart, though fan of all genres (except metal).
