The cover looks like it belongs to a book about trading stocks and the songs sound like it too!

The whole package is boring!

Too samey? Definitely. Astronoid create some very nice soundscapes here though. The vocals are sublime and remind me a lot of the ethereal tones of Ben Gibbard from Death Cab For Cutie. It's a strange contrast of triumphant sadness. The vocal range is lacking a lot though unfortunately and is probably the biggest criticism I have of this. Still, I'm enjoying it.

As a massive fan of Mew, this was a great discovery. Basically like Mew but heavier. One of my top albums of 2019

Astronoid's self-titled sophomore effort pares back the heaviness of their first album Air, which really holds this album back for me. The band is trying too hard to be too many things. One one hand the metal influence of blackgaze sometimes pokes through, but the band simultaneously clumsily applies a shoegaze-y film over these tracks, sounding like a strange mutant combination of Deafheaven and Nothing, while never quite pulling off either.
