I had fun with this. It's nothing amazing, but Joywave isn't trying to be amazing- they're just here to make catchy, fun alternative. I'd say they succeeded. Looking forward to (hopefully) seeing them in April.

EDIT: fuck corona, all my homies hate corona
Has some decent tracks and production is intriguing at times but overall pretty formulaic and basic when it boils down to it.
A safe album by Joywave but it is still enjoyable, Wish it was a little more out there like their debut but i will take a few more bops by the band

Average: 6.1/10
It was a really nice listen front to back, however it could have been a bit better if only 2-3 singles were released so that there were more songs i could hear for the first time.
A deftly crafted, weightless piece of synth fun.
