Victory Lap is about as good as a "Punk" sequel ever could have been. It's doesn't have as powerful of a message, as bold of experimentation, or as strong of cohesion, but it's still incredibly well put together and enjoyable. "Hello, I Ruined Music" and "Who is He" are 2 of the best songs Taxxon has put out this year, and that's saying a lot seeing that he just put out "Sixteen Sketchbooks Ago".

So far the weakest of Taxxon's 2019 output, but the fact that it's only an EP means that it doesn't overstay its welcome.

8.5/10

Best Track(s): Everyday Robots, Lonely Press Play, You and Me, Hollow Ponds, Heavy Seas of Love
Worst Track: Mr. Tembo

A good concept and solid lyricism can't quite save a dull aesthetic. Every track on this album sounds almost identical with a few stand out exceptions. It's not necessarily a bad album, but it's a far cry from it's predecessor.

5.5/10

Best Track(s): Merrie Land, The Great Fire, The Truce of Twilight
Worst Track: Nineteen Seventeen

A band of incredibly talented musicians? Check.
God tier lyricism from one of the best song writers of the 21st century? Check.
Production by Danger Mouse in his prime? Check.
This is by far the best thing Damon albarn has ever made, and that's saying a lot. Every track is flawless, and the entire thing flows together incredibly well. The tile track is one of the most satisfying closers to an album I've ever heard.
