So much energy and raw power can be felt from this record. World Eater is the soundtrack to a fucking riot and I love it. Fast paced beats mixed with airy and ethereal atmosphere (almost like vaporwave at times) makes for a really crazy collection of songs. Blanck Mass took some tips from producers like Daniel Lopatin and Blanck Banshee and created something even more genre-bending than his counterparts. By far one of the best and most well-rounded releases of the year, I can't wait to see ... read more
Definitely the best output from Bones since last year's Useless.

Primus gets a bit more quirky, but their sound gets a bit more accessible, on their 4th album. Much of Pork Soda is extremely similar to Seas of Cheese, but the band gets their song structures down to a much more concise format, which likely caused their biggest commercial hit, My Name Is Mud. There isn't too much else to say because I said a lot of it already in the past, but Pork Soda is Primus dominating the 90's alt rock scene in the most unorthodox way possible.
