what is it with a TON of new accounts joining just to rate this album a 100 and nothing else?
I’m low key literally triggered that people are giving it 0. Like c’mon my play and way less sad we’re the better singles from the 4 they released. Though I haven’t heard the album yet.
I stg this is gonna be like Nav's Good Intentions. Everyone gives it a 50/60 because it's slightly better than all of the other bullshit that Nav has put out in the past, Fantano gives it a NOT GOOD, and everyone changes their score to 30s/40s.
i always liked AJR but i sense that they're on a strong upward trend with this album going into the future. i haven't listened to living room so i don't know how it is but out of the click, neotheater and ok orchestra, oko is easily the most diverse, creative, well-produced and solid album they've released. my prediction is that they're going to become more and more creative in the future and eventually lose their entire schtick as the generic millennial crappy pop band as a result within the next decade, if not sooner.
I listened to like 2 seconds of every song except for CIJ and I liked every one of them except for that one with the weird high-pitched vocals, I think it was The Trick, but maybe after a full listen I'll like it
If fantano gave this a not bad I wouldn’t be surprised
Adding OK to your album titles improves the music
Can anyone send the leak?
i predict a not good from melon
i am actually addicted to this album
OK Overture (8/10) - Without a doubt the best overture that they've created so far. I love the piano section at the end and it's a shame that they didn't include that bit in a full song. It could have done without the introduction at the very beginning but regardless this is a solid introduction for the whole album.

Bummerland (6/10) - When this song was first released, I thought it was fantastic, but looking back at it now I just don't see much appeal in it anymore. The lyrics are my biggest ... read more

This list is going to be ranked from worst to best.
Sorry for the long review but I wanted to explain everything to its fullest. Im going at this completely unbiased.

1. Bang. This song does not feel like it belongs on the album. It tries to be experimental and fails where as other songs succeeded. It uses a circus type beat and will most likely be skipped when I listen to the album. It talks about going out with a bang but instead goes out with a slight “poof” ... read more
This is the first time I listen to one of this band's album........ I listened to random songs from them, they are masters of doing what I really dislike in thEeeE mUsSicC bUsSinNesSssSss.
I have no problem with pop music, in fact I really like when weird ass genres go a bit pop, it just makes everything more enjoyable.
BUT what the fuck is this overproduced shit for people that have attention problems.
You literally can check all the 'generic' music boxes.
