Billy Cobb picks up right where he left off last year (with his AMAZING string of EPs) and delivers a really solid little emo-inspired record.

He has quickly become one of my favorite artists to emerge out of the underground lately and I wish him all the success in the world!

This kid is special!
this is a really cute and fun little record! the songwriting is pretty good and the mixing isn't half bad. tbh i think the drums could use a little work as a big nitpick for me was how loud the snare was mixed into everything but i can look past that and appreciate this for what it is. good job billy cobb

Often the 20s are seen as the best times of your life, while the teen years are seen as angst ridden and the later years are full of responsabilities. But the 20s come with their own problems like finding love and finding your place in the world. Billy Cobb seems to sing about these themes. He yells "Don't expect your life to go the way you want" in the final track, encapsulating the ultimate realization of early adulthood: things dont always go as planned.
while billy cobb is known to experiment with genre, this album seems to be a return to the classic billy cobb sound. it definitely has a few rough spots, but those are more than made up for by the rest of the tracks.
faves:you’ll find her, trust me, takes two, zuzu, lost boys
least faves:, hireath, bobby, lead the way
EDIT: Raised from an 85 to a 90. This hits all the right beats for me, might be the best album of the month so far.

I agree with the other reviewers. This sounds like if Rivers Cuomo's vocals were much sadder. Given that I like Weezer the more angsty or sad they are, that's welcome.
