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.
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.
Overall I think it's a pretty good album. The only songs I don't like are No Shoulder and Who Owns Who
fav: Like a Kennedy, Coming Apart, Obsession, Blank Slate, F.E.A.R, Possession
