It's a good pop album. Deal with it hipsters!

I don't get the hate. I love this album. I don't think is too mainstream. If you don't like her previous release you never gonna like this. The best pop album of 2015 so far. Best tracks: California, Flesh Without Blood, Kill V. Maim, World Princess part II, Realiti, Venus Fly. The whole album is a standout.

Her album covers are the best, they're so creative, but they do look like they were ripped straight out of a 16 year old's tumblr. Anyway, music good

[AOTY Elon Musk attempts to review Grimes: Part 1]
It's just Grimes man, what could possibly go wrong?

Everything.

I'd be pretty satisfied to talk about Visions instead, a Grimes record I genuinely think is great, but truth is, my review would basically be me putting other reviewer's mouths into mine. I wouldn't have much to say. Now with Art Angels, I'd say that this relatively uninteresting record is a lot more interesting to discuss.

I mean, just look at the reviews for this. Though it ... read more

Always been a fan of this album but I love it now more than ever.
Been listening to it constantly on drives this last month and so many tracks are like, all-time greats i.e. Pin, Realiti, Scream, Flesh Without Blood, World Princess, Venus Fly etc etc.

It's no secret how much I worship Grimes but it's for good reason, she fucking rules.

The only thing hindering it from reaching a higher score are tracks like Life in the Vivid Dream or Belly of the Beat which, especially given their placement ... read more

それはダンス曲やエネルギーで雨だけで一つの大きな「バブルガム」ポップ・アルバムです。私のお気に入りの遠一つは、今年カバーによってカバーは、私はそれについてのすべてを愛し、です。

The best pop record of the 21st century as far as I'm concerned.

Art Angels marked a stark pivot in Grimes’s work, leaning slightly away from her indie-pop/synth-pop roots and going full throttle electro-pop. This caused a mixed reaction among listeners, with some embracing the new direction and others scoffing at it. I feel somewhere in the middle. I really like a lot of the more upbeat sounding pieces, and I love how present Grimes’s vocals are (in many past projects bar most of visions, they were often lost among the production). On the other ... read more

Grimes has always come from some weird, intriguing place. That much has been apparent on her previous left-field recordings like Visions or Geidi Primes, efforts that were occasionally mesmerizing in sound but not fully compelling all the way through. With Art Angels, Grimes makes good on her promising ideas by combining more conventional pop melodies with her signature weirdo synthpop. The pop melodies allow her sounds to flourish, creating ridiculously catchy songs and hooks that could ... read more

One of the most acclaimed albums of the past decade, "Art Angels" is the fourth studio album of the acclaimed and bizarrely interesting Grimes that had been released in the year 2015. In 14 tracks built over 3 years, Claire brings her more accessible side amidst all her experience in experimental shaping pop in its dream, art, dance and synth strands, where her emotional instability after a tour that physically collapsed her and sexism suffered by the media that infantilized her and ... read more

i'm new to this genre of pop music. i accidentally stumbled upon Grimes a couple of years ago and I can't get enough. this album is pure Grimes. there are a few killer tracks that I will probably listen 'ad nauseum'

It's bonkers, it's poppy, it's catchy, it's inventive, it's fucking insane and I like it a lot! Yeah, sure, it's more pop-centric than any of her previous records, but who gives a damn? The production on here is superb, with tons more emphasis on percussion, guitars and bass than usual. Plus, her voice is still there and more matured than ever, yet it still feels as alien as this album art. I know it kind of seems like I'm defending in an argument that has stopped years ago, so I'll just leave ... read more

The creative explosion is vividly demonstrated clearly as Grimes' has substantially improved as a producer, lyricist, and overall musician.

Grimes must be an angel because she has a god-given gift for catchy melodies and hooks. Also she’s really pretty do u guys think she’d leave Elon for me. Anyway. It’s insane how sticky every single one of these choruses is I’m forever in awe. You could tell me that Grimes injected cocaine into these songs and I would believe you fully.

From California to Pin, Belly of the Beat to Artangels, Kill V. Maim to Kill V. Maim, every song here is so well put together and ... read more
