Edit: I finally listened lol... WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAHHHHH

Their only “Great” album. Certainly not for everyone, but I think for what they try to do with this album, they manage to succeed while simultaneously not being cringe or repetitive. Rather it is catchy, wholesome, sweet, yet dark.

It works UNBELIEVABLY well as a complete experience from front to back with very little holding it back. It’s truly an amazing listen and it only is growing as I keep listening

Am I allowed to give 2 100's in a year? Cause like... wow... this is one of the best albums of the decade

I listened to each album from Daughters, and found a lot of quality in their discography... but this brought absolutely everything. I have a feeling that if you just leap into this album, the incredible pacing and atmosphere will instantly grab onto you, and drag you into the abyss that is this beast of an album. Trust me when I say this thing is a journey. It is the first Daughters album ... read more

I don't get it. It definitely had some interesting moments but I don't get the hype. Nothing about it stands out that much for me to greatly appreciate. Sounds like a typical bandcamp noise rock album.

Edit: watch the user score peak after that 10/10 from Fantano. Interesting how large his influence is, especially on this website.

I tried to not compare this to Rodeo, and It is tough. Rodeo is one of my favorite rap albums, and quite possibly the best Trap Rap album of the decade. I had high hopes going into this album, but it just lacks focus and structure. I feels like a collection of confused, mixed quality trap bangers.

I heard this album when Fantano was listening in a discord, and I couldn't see the track listing at the time. Without seeing the trackless, this album will seem like it has way more songs than the 17 ... read more

This album is the best example of how greedy the music industry is. All the songs are throwaway beats mixed with some verses that are repeated because they didn't have enough recordings. They barely have enough material for an album....


Putting that aside, this album doesn't have any redeeming quality. Not even Kanye (he's probably the best part on the whole album).

It's a lazy pretentious robotic voice...

The best track on the album. The flow is ... read more

TLDR: AOTY. Kanye's done it again. Not as good as MBDTF or LR, better than 808s & Yeezus. Sweet, very personal project with impeccable production, the tightest lyrical performance since MBDTF and a couple of bangers. Couple of dad jokes too but they're funny & charismatic.

Best Advice? Ignore the reviews. It's a short album, give it 3 or 4 listens and make your own mind up. People are too emotional to be objective. Don't poison the well, think for yourself. I think you'll probably ... read more

This album emits a stench similar to the stench of Lorde's most contrived songs off Melodrama. I tried to maintain some semblance through the first two tracks, but every next song proved to be more noxious than the last. The production is nearly pristine, complimented by a dazzling exhibition of un-artistry! It's not as tasteful as the band would like for you to assume. Matthew Healy conveys a fetching facade, and girls will swoon to the album's "dramatic" arc (probably trembling ... read more

I think we all knew this was going to be great, but not on this level.
(Fantano gonna give this a six, watch)

The amount of urban white girls and cholas I know who think they're listening to underground trap rap has me confused on how to react.

Original score: 50

Review from albums launch week: Wow that cover is ugly. Anyways, I think everyone had their concerns with this record. From Ameer to closeted projects and now their $15,000,000 major label deal with RCA. My personal concern wasn't music however. I knew (even if Ameer was around) BH would stray from what they were known for. ... read more

This album just doesn't have the bite I thought it would, he kinda played it safe here to me. The last 3 tracks are the top 3 imo, there were also many bad lines on this album, most of the beats are pretty dime a dozen too. Denzel's consistently sticky hooks and incredibly cut throat and untamed performances are what carried this thing for me, outside of that I can't say this has fulfilled me like I wanted it to.

This is the best Kid Cudi has sounded... period

While it is pretty much the musical equivelant of a water color painting (yes the cover reflects this very well) It lacks any cohesion. HOWEVER much like ye which I literally despised until just today, I can see this growing into my AOTY

the production is THAT GOOD

Edit: 4 consecutive listens later this thing completely grabbed me

Edit 2: HOLY CRAP A 10

Better than the 1997-99 singles but god damn did I get bored. Impressive moments and verses here and there, but as an album Iridescence fails to bring the charm and charisma that the Saturation trilogy had.

this album is truly ambitious. it tried to get into everything and anything. the only reason i'm surprised is that it did everything perfectly. icarus falls is THE album of 2018 and we all know it.

Y’all sleepin on my boy Lil Xan. Say what you want about him but he is surprisingly the first person EVER to have a negative IQ! It’s insane how that’s even possible

If You’re Reading This It’s Terrible

Listening to Scorpion is like overheating in a desert, walking from one sparkling song oasis to another, eventually dehydrating, dying from lack of quality, engagement & importance.

Not to say there aren’t some really great songs on here, but overall, even VIEWS is more memorable. I sometimes want to retreat to literally any other album of his. It sounds like God’s Plan blew up, and Drake said welp, gotta make 24 more songs real ... read more

EDIT: PITCHFORK REALLY CALLED DOM'S VERSE ON THUG LIFE "FAUX SAD-BOY DEEPNESS" IT'S STILL FUCK PITCHFORK.

IF YOU WERE WORRIED ABOUT THIS ALBUM BECAUSE OF THE RECENT SINGLES, YOU CAN REST EASY. I LIKED THE SINGLES A LOT, BUT THEY DON'T HOLD A CANDLE TO THIS. IRIDESCENCE CONSISTS OF SOME OF THE HARDEST AND MOST EXPERIMENTAL TRACKS THEY'VE EVER PUT OUT. THE PRODUCTION ON THIS THING IS FUCKING BONKERS. THERE'S CLEAR INFLUENCE FROM EXPERIMENTAL ARTISTS SUCH AS SOPHIE (ESPECIALLY ON ... read more

I can still recall the day in which I discovered Death Grips, I was a junior in high school and was deep into my metalcore and pop punk phase. I had stumbled across a video on youtube of a melon shaped man discussing music, I was immediately drawn to his ability to express his opinions in such a carefree and natural manner. I found myself watching his videos often, and at that time he had only ever given one 10/10 review - which was for Death Grips's 2012 LP The Money Store. Out of curiosity I ... read more

Final Edit: (8-31-18 Score: 77) After... countless frustrating listens to an album that simply felt uninteresting to me... but the irony is as soon as I put out a video review... it clicked. So much so that I shed a handful of tears in the process of this extraordinary larger-than-life experience of an album that somehow feels so... human.

I just want to trigger people

Edit: I jokingly made this review in March and gave this album a 0/10. However my real score id give this album is probably ... read more

It's listenable. Props Marshall!

PS: L for dissing Tyler because he criticized you, downplaying Earl and recognizing Hopsin. Why are you throwing shots at Drake?
Old ass.

Update: Paul confirmed Marshall wasn't dissing Aubrey. However that doesn't change my opinion on the album.

FINAL VERDICT: Building off the sounds he first began exploring on his self-titled debut, Die Lit sees Playboi Carti really living up to his album title as he outdoes himself on his sprawling sophomore album. Every ad-lib, claustrophobically minimalist instrumental, and guest feature is employed to maximum effect, allowing Playboi Carti to hit every note his sound is capable of manifesting. Sure, it may be a little long-winded, and it took me (and many others I'm sure) time to warm up to Carti ... read more

Edit 2: Video Review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crEQknqcH0w

Edit: okay... what I find really interesting about this album is how, in the Saturation trilogy, each member seems to spill their own personal issues onto each song. Lyrics often dealt with personal struggle, come up, drugs, and tons of other issues. With this new release, it seems like everyone is doing the same thing, with talking about personal struggle, but what is funny is how every single member is hurting from depression ... read more

What the hell is wrong with you people.

Bot Invasions of 2018: at least 5

Edit: Someone get Rob 😤🚨

Edit 2: you think this is bot infested, check out Camila Cabello's album 😂

I've seen this grow off of nearly everyone and at this point, yeah, it got old. Obviously it's still great, but as everything around Brockhampton slowed down and it was possible to look at Iridescence without all the hype, all of its flaws do get accentuated. It still has its highs, some of the group's best material, but the lows get deeper and deeper the more I sit with thus project.

Original score: 93
Ok wow.
