Definitely has some slightly rough spots, but you cannot tell me that Spend Your $$$ isn't an absolute banger. Also Portugal is one of the best indie pop songs of the 2010s and I will not debate you on it

Fuck it, I guess I'll lean into being even more of a stereotype. Took a long time for me to stop being a contrarian about this album, but I've finally realized that there's not a single song on here I'm not in love with. It's finally time for me to embrace my inner white music journalist

Some really great, iconic feats of songwriting, then like 6 tracks of filler. It's pretty good filler so like still pleasant, but it does kneecap this album's potential a little.

Musically, it's not totally as weird as Pithecanthropus. I mean Blue Cee barely even sounds like a Charles Mingues song tbh. But conceptually this album is a fucking TRIP. Heavy blues inspired epics and an improvised monologue about a depressed clown over insane improvisation? In 1957? How was Charles Mingus even a real guy??

Yeah, I can't help but love this album. The highs are incredible, the time signature gimmick keeps it interesting, and the piano playing is nothing short of gorgeous.

Hi, I just released my new Ep YΕ«gen (εΉ½ηŽ„) It is made in ambient style so if you like this kind of music you can give it a chance if you want. I would be very happy to hear what are your thoughts about this record. Simple rating would be great too!! Thank you and sorry for bothering ^.^

Here is a link to Ep: https://soundcloud.com/hubert-dobrych-op/sets/y-gen
