CRITIC REVIEWS

DIY
Not since Late of the Pier’s ‘Fantasy Black Channel’ has there been something in the same scope or executed so confidently on a debut. If they are his closest contemporaries, then it shows that Clarence Clarity is currently without an equal.

His ability to throw together ideas and snippets of sound that no one else would ever think of teaming together comes from a real ambition to push the listener as much as his own ability to create.

Consequence of Sound
This is maximalist music for the internet age, designed for minds that can’t be bothered to scroll to the bottom of the page but click ever onward toward the next moment of ecstasy.

Loud and Quiet
‘No Now’ is ultimately patchy; the constant stylistic twists and turns torpedo any aspiration of cohesion, and it’s often painfully apparent that Clarity didn’t have anybody of an editorial bent on board.

I remember when this came out back in 2015, it was one of the most exciting and refreshing albums I had listened to and greatly impacted my tastes in music. 4 years later and I argue it has gotten even more bold and groundbreaking, even if I have more minor problems with it musically now than before.

this is so damn close to perfect. In my top 10 favorite albums ever maybe 5. the production of course is the highlight but the unique vocals paired with great lyrics make this a once in a generation type of album. the layers the infectious and catchy lyrics my god im in love. this may get to be a 10 depending on how well it sits after a few weeks.

A wise man once said, "The songs you grow to like never stick at first." Indeed, this album was challenging at first, but before I even got through it once I found myself singing along. This entire album is straight JAMS, and this will likely go down as my second favorite album of the year.
