Flirting with country music, alternative, a little bit of jazz and loads of synthpop 'Twin Shadow' self-titled album is worth of your listen. Twin has been an artist so appealing for me for quite a while, even though I wasn't aware of this album pretty much till last week, I'm so happy he released it. This record kinda reminded me of the last Beck album which I enjoyed a lot and most people hated, this will probably have the same result but I hope not.


There's so much beauty in this album, but it just falls short in being a great album (for me) in its simplicity and rather forgettable lyricism.


this album is catchy asf


Yes, good, but sometimes I escape this album because of how sweet, way too sweet some of these songs sound, like I wanted some edge off a lot of these tracks that I got from Alemania or Modern Man but most of them did not perform for me and I would be ok with not listening to them again.
Alemania is one of my favorite tracks atm tho.


A pleasant, light-hearted collection of catchy indie pop songs. I wouldn’t say there’s anything particularly amazing about this record, aside from a few really enjoyable highlights, but there’s not really any bad things about it either.

Fav tracks: Alemania, Sugarcane, Johnny and Jonnie, Get Closer, Gated Windows, Brown Sugar (fav)

Least fav track: I Wanna Be Here (still solid tho)


Twin Shadow comes through with a self titled release that blends so many genres together to create a beautiful psychedelic experience. While it isn't lyrically dense, the album provides catchy hooks that combine with the bright, joyous guitars and beats. It's not revolutionary, but Twin Shadow made a wonderful project that's been stuck in my head since my first listen.
