An experience so thrilling, with a payoff so devastating, you don't even realize it's a 20 minute song with 5 minutes of ambient harsh noise. It's like the ending is the much deserved aftermath after a mass destruction. One of the most grand displays of pure musical force I can think of.

Although way less accessible and catchy than most of her other stuff, Biophilia instead crafts an out-of-body experimental world that will leave listeners with a mix of awe and confusion for years to come.

Janelle goes from Alternative R&B pioneer to underdog pop star to make a set of thought-provoking bangers

Definitely overrated and a little inconsistent as a full listening experience, but still undeniably ambitious and well-crafted.
(but that Chris Rock skit really tanked the tone and flow of the whole thing tbh)

Lackluster instrumentation on some tracks is made up for by lush and/or punchy instrumentation on others, not to mention fantastic lyrics and storytelling throughout.

Out here trying to get that minor in music but still listen to my opinions for now I guess.

10 - Potential all-time favorite
9 - Potential aoty
8 - Straight-forward great album
7 - Really good album but with notable flaws
6 - Pretty good
5 - Eh?
4 - Not for me
3 - Maybe some good but mostly bad
2 - Really bad
1 - Fuck this album
0 - Angelic 2 the Core
Any number with a 5 at the end means I'm on the fence between two ratings
A NR means I haven't listened to it enough to give my final thoughts
