Glass Beach's first album cones off as a surprise since it's an overlooked album from 2019 and I'm not a big fan of it's main genres (Indie Rock and Pop Punk). Glass Beach don't really reinvent the genres but they are able to twist them on their own terms to create a beautiful sounding album.

This is a fucking masterpiece. I listened to this with my friends while going through an airport and I have to say every bit is a wild rush. It may not be the most inventive or creative out there, but FUCK it creates a wonderful blend of all the genres I like listening to.
