This album has been my first experience listening to a full solo project of Ada Rook's and I was quite blown away.

2,020 knives is ada rook at her most personal, with extremely emotional lyrics and deliveries, and the production is so much more developed and intricate than 2018's shed blood, which i enjoyed a lot as well. shrouded in noise, this album is raw in all sorts of the word, whether it's rook's screeching voice on portions of the album or the wild electronic noises that are heavily present all throughout it, and it truly deserves to be. i loved this album.

Crazy production runs amok on most tracks with no restraint and it somehow works to create catchy hooks and songs that are constantly changing and growing as you listen.
