Weyes Blood - Titanic Rising

Holy wow this is gorgeous.

Yea no, this is worth the hype and then some. An album so lush and sweet with it's instrumentals, yet heartbreaking at the same time with it's lyrics. Every tone on this album is just perfect for the mood she's trying to set for each and every track, the progressions are some of the best i've ever heard in pop and her build ups and breakdowns are something to behold as Weyes Blood delivers her opus. This album is shockingly consistent, there is not one track that i would consider particularly "weak". Absolutely breathtaking.

Edit: ok so this gets better every time i listen to it

The lowest score is 71 (or 74? Idk) and that has to say something. I already know this is something I'm gonna like (since she dropped that first single actually) ....but now I'm wondering if she made a legitimate masterpiece

great description. that's what we call strength of composition. she has moved from "song-writer" to composer. there is a huge difference.

This is such a Gavin album so I'm pretty sure you'll love it, and it might just be a masterpiece, so far so good. @ThrowBackG

Thanks and I totally agree, I think the fact that she got picked up by Sub Pop helped with that transformation of her sound, i believe that because of the label she had more resources to deal with the compositions which in turn added to the beauty of her already established Singer-Songwriter sound @JohnLouisHoward

yes totally agree @amw100 moving from Mexican Summer to Sub Pop means going from "specialty format" to a major label, which Sub Pop (Warner) is, with all the good things (better studio, engineering, etc.) and bad things (Warner) that go with that.
